Interesting picture. I'm of two minds about the haze, by the man's face.....part of me doesn't like the haze....the other part feels it adds atmosphere to the picture.

The man's dress...thin lapeled suit, the cut of the suit, horn rimmed glasses...almost have me guessing about the period....is it late '60's when that was also the style...or current. I'm assuming current.

I recall suits of that style back then...even had a few... ....I should of kept them...as they say...styles always return.

I like the background...is that the famous street in London...where there is a well known street market, which has been featured in several movies, TV shows...looks familiar ?

I went to your 'strangers' blog. Some great pix...I wish I could do that. I don't have the courage, although I wish I did.

Any special approach ?

Hi Les, thanks for the comment :-). The shot is current, well was taking last weekend, in the middle of Bristol City, UK.

No special approach. Once I find somebody who is visually appealing, I just walk up and ask if I can take their photo!
