Photograph of the Day – Brian

I saw Brian sitting in a phone box on High Street with his worldly possessions in a black bin bag at his feet. I had a brief conversation with him and he told me that he was a Falls Road Prod to which i replied that there can’t be too many of those. I saw Brian the other day and sadly he was a lil worse for wear but the 5 mins i spent  in his company  last year,  have stayed with me. A kindly and soft spoken man who is afflicted by a disease but has retained his dignity and this portrait i feel puts that across.
