    I was walking the streets looking for a good portrait subject when I happened upon Gordon. He was sat on a bench in the middle of Bristol city centre. Opposite him, in a doorway, a homeless couple were arguing, about what appeared to be a drug issue. Gordon and I started chatting, and he explained that he'd worked all his life and still had two jobs, doing gardening and odd jobs for neighbours.

    The 92 year old shook his head dissaprovingly as the police took the arguing couple away.

    Always enjoy your work. They have such a real feel to them, as if you are looking at the subject and not a photograph.

    Your subjects always project their life in their faces. They give me the impression of having hours of stories to tell. Another great photo.

    Excellent image of what I'm sure was a great man to have a conversation with.
