Shoreditch - 16 Sep 21 - Sophie

By nellacphoto  
I saw Sophie walking along the other side of a small street in Shoreditch
I crossed over to say Hi
She was in London for a few days from Oban, Scotland
Her friend was back at the hotel sleeping off a hangover from their revels the night before!

I talked about doing some photos
She seemed up for the idea but asked me what it was for
I said it was just for my website
Understandably, slightly uncertain, she said what website?

I immediately gave her my photography "business" card, which shows some of my photos, my email address and my website address

Her whole demeanour changed instantly
"Oh right ... it's legit! Great ... let's do it"
As John (lifesnapper) will agree, it's really useful to carry cards when doing street photography

We then crossed back over the road to yet another great Shoreditch background and she seemed to really enjoy the whole experience

She later emailed me for the photos (that's quite rare ... although last Thursday 4 out of 6 did)
I sent them to her and she said they were fab and that her mum loves them!
Makes it all worthwhile

A joyous set here, Colin a lovely young lady with highland blood flowing through her veins and probably some alcohol too. Wink
I love her happy disposition and willingness to pose despite being unused to doing it for a 'proper' camera. I bet her friend was jealous when she saw these images. Smile

My award today should be shared between the both of you but I'm sure you'll take care of her half.

All the best and here's to your next colourful visit, to your very successful hunting ground.
