Portfolios: United Kingdom & Norway: Standing Strong.

A magazine that I was in constant support when I was studying in Melbourne; The Big Issue was one route out for the less-privileged of our society. How it all works is vendors (licensed) purchased the magazines from the publisher for a small sum and they will then head to the streets and sell them for a small profit. Paul Martin, a friendly Nigerian I met in London stood near the entrance of Kings Cross St Pancras station and despite having bought 2 of same issues on the same day, I approached him to get my 3rd copy. He was stunned to hear that I had 2 of the same in my bag and greatly appreciated my support.The next day, I was elated to see him standing there at the same spot and requested for a photo. He gladly agreed and I stood a short distance away and went about dragging the shutter which is a technique that I am getting very fond of. Job done, showed Paul the photos and with a smile, we parted ways. But not before I got his address and promised him a print. It's on its way Paul!Canon EOS 5D Mark III, Canon 16-35L.
