Where are my glasses?

I was on Oxford Street in stormy weather when I watched this guy wrestle with his umbrella against the gale-force winds before finally giving up and trashing it.

 

I had been looking for shots that night and I thought this would make a good one particularly as my own umbrella was wrecked (but I had to protect my camera gear so I couldn't thrash it) and I was already cold, wet and miserable.

 

Auto-focus wouldn't lock on so this is the best I could do with Manual Focus . . . I had my glasses on but I still couldn't see clearly enough to get a sharper focus on the umbrella . . . or perhaps it was the wrecked umbrella swaying in the wind and throwing off the focus? I don't know . . .
