London – home of the brash, outrageous and free.

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.”

Here are a few more colourful characters at the Skatepark on the South Bank.

    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.
