London – home of the brash, outrageous and free.

Greg the London Underground Employee

Passing though Oxford Circus in London at the weekend, on a brief visit home to celebrate my 40th birthday with family and friends I met Greg, the London Underground employee. I asked him if I could take his photo and he said, in his most polite cock-er-ney accent; “How do you want me, straight on or profile.” This was the profile shot. And as I took the photo, the lyrics of Morrissey’s Hairdresser on fire, went through my mind;

Here is London, Home of the Brash Outrageous and Free. You are repressed, but remarkably dressed.”

  1. I’m not sure how, but i’ve never spotted Greg on my underground travels. Great picture and cracking use of a Morrissey lyric!

      Thank you… The moment I spotted Greg, the Morrissey lyric jumped into my head and I thought I must get a decent photo, to illustrate the moment. If you pass through Oxford Circus, be sure to keep your eyes peeled for him.
