tube snap

I think there's probably a post to follow on the ethics of photographing strangers without their permission, but in the meantime - here's a sneaky shot taken on the tube last week. I don't think I quite managed to capture just how fascinating this guy's face was, but I had a go. There's something weary, and wily, and endearing, and severe about him, all at the same time. A wonderful face.

There can be something fascinating about people on the tube. I don't think I woulod have the nerve to take photos though.

Some people are not quite so shy about it though... have a look at this!
