The Puff, London, United Kingdom
Photo for May 2013 (The Puff, London)
Street photography seems to always make me look somewhat like a security personnel on high alert. Looking in all 4 directions and getting in onto the details while stepping out to take the wide scene was part and parcel of it all. There are times when stepping back to get a closer look at things will lead to a shot itself.
In this case, I was walking along the wet pavements of London downtown when I stopped, reversed and noticed a man behind a concrete pillar, taking a smoke. Moving a little to the right to conceal his face partially, I waited for the exhale.
