it's a bird...


I was in Hyde Park, shooting the first roses about to bloom, when I saw this woman struggling to set up a self portrait by balancing it on the railings. She spoke no English, so I have no idea where she got her fabulous boots, or that great grey felt skirt (so Joseph Beuys.) Just as I clicked the shutter, a pigeon flew past, the same dove grey as her skirt.

I like her layering, but most importantly she has a beautiful smile. (always ones best accessory).
