Story behind the photograph - London's West End

March 10, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

Going back through some old blogs from 2014 that reached the most people.  I still love this photo.

 

The old lady being given directions caught my attention about five minutes before I captured this image.  She was wondering through London’s West End and was obviously looking for somewhere. 

 

She stood out among the West End crowds with her huge gold earrings and gold bangles. 

 

This was shot through a crowd of people and I only managed to get one exposure away before losing the moment.  I love the the clear direction being given by one woman, to the ‘I’m not sure’ of the woman in the striped top, and the look on the husbands face; all the time life in London is going on around them.
