The little story is related to and indeed was made possible by Macfilos.

Last December, while visiting London and inspired by the article in Macfilos, I went out of my way to visit the Dennis Severs house in Spitalfields. While waiting, in the rain of course, for the lunch-time opening, I saw this fellow leaning against the window of the pub across the street. While I’m not much of a street photographer, the contrast between his clothing and demeanour and that of the couple immediately behind him was too good to let pass. Better still, the pub itself provided a good background for an “environmental” portrait.

In all it was a great day, one nice picture, a tour of a fascinating house, and a very nice pub lunch (elsewhere) to finish.

This picture was taken with an X-Pro 2 and the Fujinon 18mm pancake.
