Anna #271

I was wandering around between Oxford Street and Liberty's Store, London and hadn't really come across anybody that I wanted to photograph - it was odd as I'd already walked around a good part of the usual London route but nothing.

 

I spotted this alley and hung around to see if anyone came by and soon enough Anna appeared. I managed to catch her attention and say hello, a moment later and I think Colin would have bashed me down and taken the shot!

 

Anna was happy to pose, she was on her break from work and seemed fine at ease taking her time for a few photos.

 

I loved her outfit and that is what immediately caught my attention - the red shoes, leather breastplate styled top - all very very cool!

It came as no surprise to find out that Anna was a fashion designer who aspires to opening her own shop - she obviously has superb taste!

 

I was shooting with the 85mm so getting the full length shot was hairy as I had to back into the road narrowly escaping a few cars but I really feel it was well worth it!
