This poor man seemed oblivious to the shower we had just had and the heavens that were about to open. Then again, maybe that was the least of his worries. I felt a bit guilty taking this shot and have never taken candid shots of others before, let alone without asking. I took it very quickly (as you can tell) and moved on. Initially I was disappointed with the taxi in the background but it almost seems fitting to show the contrast between him going nowhere right now and life whizzing passed without him even noticing. I'm now in the warm at home and probably about to have a little G&T soon... I wonder where he is or what he's doing right now.
