City Surfing

Brian knew he was a cool dude. He lived for the admiring glances he caught out of the corner of his eye when surfing the streets of Manchester.

Thanks Daniel - that's the nicest compliment anyone could have given me as Hugo Poon is my photographic hero. In fact he is the sole reason that I went out and bought the compact camera used to take all the photos on this blog - the Fuji F31. I have already told him over on the dpreview fujiforum that Fuji should pay him commission on all the camera he sells for them!
I agree it would be great to see his photos on this site.
All the best, Ian

This is a great photo Ian, perfect timing. I'm also a fan of b/w and will browse your photos over the next few days.

This guy fits the part of 'Pretty fly for a white guy' perfectly! lol :)

@Lorraine: :-)
By the way, did you look at that 'Partial Sight' blog? the photos are some times a mystery until you read the commentary.
