Story about this shot
I was about to leave Spitalfields Market and recognized our stranger leaving with a so called "early morning sunday face". Sundays - speaking of which. If you ever thought about doing strangers, consider starting on a Sunday. Most shops are closed and everyone seems to enjoy just sticking around - waiting for you to take advantage of moments like these.
About this stranger
Meet Simon, 34 old. A south african who lives in London for more than ten years now. He works as a financier - "You know: Money. Public Policy and stuff".
He loves movies by this crazy french guy(?). He liked that movie about the landlord of an apartment building who occasional prepares a delicacy for his odd tenants. as You might have know already: It's Delicatessen by Jean-Pierre Jeunet. "City of lost children" and of course his masterpiece "Amélie" are also to be mentioned here. He didn't like his last effort "Micmacs" and recommended not to watch it since this seemed to be the only Jeunet movie I missed so far.
Simon has a weakness for bikes - apparently everyone in London has. He enjoys to repair and assembling things if life permits the time.
Let's have a look at the things he is carrying: Newspaper, two cups of coffee and a cinnamon roll. "The most aromatic you might get around here, but the best thing about a Sunday mornings are: cinnamon rolls. You should try one of these!"
It was very nice talking to Simon. The shoot was fun and if he had not remembered why he was actually holding two cups of (in the meantime cold) coffee, it could have been going on and on. So he had to move on to rejoin his beloved wife in bed.
Therefore he must be the: The Sunday Faced Cupholder.
