Vote for Nora, Brighton Bird lady 5/06/2009
Stranger number 22 for my 100 strangers project .
Been trying to capture this famous Brighton eccentric for years now , im always stuck
in traffic with no camera .
But today i plucked up courage to talk to her ,even if i scarred the birds away for a moment .
We talked politics ,Supermarket food waste , marine biology & birds .
Her said she wasn't a tramp & had a smart blouse on under her dirty rain coat @ 83 got out every day rain or shine to feed the seagulls & pigeons ,she was so passionate about them ,she was a inspiration !
Today she had brought 4 cooked chickens down for a Friday treat for the birds .
Shook my hand & was happy for her portrait to be taken .
Told me she was used to the camera as she had been on tv once .
Thank you Nora you made my day !
