I had just been hypnotised for the first time ever whilst hanging around Seven Dials - a weird but not unenjoyable experience although I am sure I held back too much to really give the person full control!
Afterwards I felt a little weird but didn't want to fall off my Street Portrait mojo...I continued a short wander and soon spotted Isabel. It was Isabel's eyes that first caught my attention and I codlin;t resist but to ask her for a portrait. It was quite a busy street so I opted for a simpler background than the other portraits I have been shooting, popped up a simple reflector and fired of a number of shots whilst we chatted.
Isabel was lovely to talk to, she is originally from Germany, West near Cologne although I am sure her grasp of English was even better than mine. She was having a break from her part time job in an in a nearby busy ice cream parlour - the queue was out the door!
She studies Diplomacy and Law in the UK.
Thank you for your time and dI hope you like the image we took, thank you for your time!
