Canon 5Dmkii, 24-70mm at 38mm, f11, 1/6 sec, ISO 100. Tripod used. .3 Lee ND Graduated filter.
2 Days into my new job in London I decided to get in super early to see if I could catch some early mist by Tower Bridge.
I eventually found a favourable spot and got dressed into my outfit. As it was 4am there were only a few runners giving me puzzled looks. After a couple of hours trying various poses, dodging rain showers and the odd comment or two an American chap scared the life out of me when he tapped me on the leg and asked “hey buddy, are you OK?”.
Difficult one that, as I was standing on a wall with a 40ft drop the other side dressed in a business suit with a Bowler Hat and Umbrella.
All I could say was “urm, I think so”.

This shot is also available from a photobook collection called ‘All Business’ by redtree.me

    Terrific silhouette, great concept!
    Reminds me of Pan Tau, a popular title character of a series of Czech family films made in the 60’s to 80’s… Well, he probably would jump! (but he didn’t need to deliver the pictures…)
