Limping in the Rain
10

I had been out all day pounding the streets of Bristol looking for a photo opportunity, but as is so often the case, wasn't having much luck. Then, on top of everything it started to rain. So, i started to head home when I spotted this guy walking through the street, begging for money.

He'd hurt is leg which was crudely bandaged and wrapped in plastic bags. As he hobbled through the street, the crowds of people parted to avoid having to make contact. It was a pretty desperate scene. I went over, had a chat with him and bought him coffee and a sandwich.

He allowed me to take his portrait. It took all of 30 seconds to fire off a series of shots, whilst trying to make sure my beloved 80mm didn't get wet. It didn't.

Thanks for looking
