I thought I should show you this photograph. It was taken a few minutes before yesterday’s. As I was hovering about with the camera, trying not to look too dodgy, a group of guys walked past. They looked like well healed tourists and I’d passed them earlier as they were coming out of a tailor’s on Savile Row.
As I looked up from my chimping this guy smiled and said…
“Hey, you wanna take a picture of an American?”
“Yeah OK.” I replied
“Yeah, cool. Go on, stand there. So where you from?” I asked as I pointed the camera at him…
“THE U.S of A!!”
I never got his name, but I’m going to call him ‘R’ as that’s what he’s got engraved on his gold tooth. What a guy – he was very pleased with himself.
