Beauty and the Beast – Part Deux   Leave a comment


Beauty and the Beast, a photo by Paulco_CDN on Flickr.

In the summer of 2009, I was in London on business and stayed the weekend to take in the city. This picture was taken in Trafalgar Square and the young lady was posing for another photographer nearby.

Observing the “action”, I couldn’t help but notice the shirtless man beside her also hamming it up for the camera, much to the chagrin of both the model and the photographer. Of course I was loving his shenanigans. It was such an obvious case of “beauty and the beast”, I had to snap away. I was far enough away that I was unnoticed, and the troublesome, albeit innocent jester, continued to pose and tease his unwilling beauty. I loved how, despite his obvious imperfections, he felt he was a match for the woman beside him.
