Part of our challenge during the day with Homer Sykes in Portobello Road, London was to take environmental portraits and find out what, when, where, why and who you were photographing.
I stopped for a croissant and a cuppa and took the time to chat with the owner. I didn’t originally intend to do this as I was sheltering from the rain but found him be really friendly, open and warm.
I now know his views on Brexit, his family history and the history of the wonderful bakery he manages. Sadly I have forgotten his name (I am terrible with names).
I like this portrait although it took lots of attempts as I was rather embarrassed to be taking it and had the settings all over the place. I took several attempts, most with the ISO far too high.
This is the sharpest image I captured and am happy with the pose and his place in his environment.
If you’re every near Goldborne Road I highly recommend the almond croissants 😉
