The Man with the Dragon Tattoo

I took part in Photo London 24 last year (sadly they didn’t hold the event this year).

You spend 24 hours in the capital either on your own or with fellow photographers and shoot whatever catches your eye.

There were also hourly challenges and one was to shoot a dragon.

I did the usual and shot the Griffin’s guarding the city of London but happened to find this chap with a dragon tattoo.

I’m not normally brave enough to stop a random stranger in the street to ask to take their photo but on this occasion, I went for it.

I explained what I was doing and the guy was really nice and stood forme to take this photo of his arm.

In hindsight, I should have taken a portrait but was pleased with myself for stopping to ask and get the shot.

I also would have shot this with a higher aperture to focus on the dragon.

Not my best photo but one where I will remember the circumstance and the lessons it taught me.

    1. It was – certainly made you think about what you were photographing and taking the time to concentrate on it.

      It’s a shame it didn’t run this year.

      Thanks for the feedback 🙂
