Graham, A Portrait

This is a chap I met today after my walk with my friend Sharon at the Flower Market. He runs a cafe called "Time For Tea" in Shoreditch.

From the looks of it, he has got time for tea. A classical pose and shot.
subtle and timeless, I'd love it best without the painting in the background but I still love it anyway !
Jide Alakija: Thx, fair enough about the picture but it's part of the story as it holds vital info about where the shot was set, it's shows queen victoria and prince edward, essential to the Tea shops character where this shot was taken. Even the style of the milk cup you see in view is important and part of this shot.

Basically everything you see in this photo (apart from my business card on the table top is deliberate and part of the story being told)

On the contrary, your business card is part of the story: the intrusion of the photography with his trade tools.
