It was the pink hair and clown-like face paint that caught my eye. Then there was the surprised stare as he posed for the camera.
Taken in Baker Street at Pride London in 2009. He only held that expression for an instant but it was long enough. The guy in the background nicely fills the corner with a similar look but toned and a little softer so it doesn’t impact too much on the foreground figure.
There was something about this gentleman sitting at the side of the road in Vinales. I think it was the mix of the white cap, designer sunglasses and the big cigar with that wizened face that prompted me to indicate to him that I wanted to take his photograph. He was quite willing to pose.
