While waiting for a friend in Soho I spent my time doing what I love to do most, observing the world.
As I tucked myself into a niche between indoors and outdoors I discovered that I had a split view of activity inside of a coffee shop and the street outside.
All I had to do next was wait for the moment when the two worlds were in sync.
Street photography has a lot of parallels to fishing in which a whole lot of time is spent waiting. If you’re lucky, your patience will be rewarded with a moment of excitement.
A real street photographer, like a real fisherman, knows that sometimes nothing is going to happen. But they both know that it’s not always about the catch.
However, on that morning, I caught my limit.
