Alarm Call

Posted on Thu 22nd Dec, 2005, 12:49am

ISO: 1600, Shutter speed: 1/40, Aperture: f/2.8,
Camera: Canon EOS 20D, Flash: None, Cropping: None,
Lens: Sigma 18-50mm F2.8 EX DC, Focal length: 50mm,
Captured: 14th December 2005, 1:49am,

I shot this near Victoria station as I staggered back from one of the work Christmas parties (I forget which one).

There's not a lot to say about it. The main thing that struck me was the idea that homeless people still care what time they wake up, and why not. I was intrigued to know what he needed to get up for but obviously I wasn't about to wake him and ask.

As for the picture, I had a stab at reducing the noise, not that it matters for websize images, and it seemed to go quite well. My favourite thing about the picture itself is his nose poking out of the sleeping bag hood. Don't know why, I just like it.

I love this picture! Although who would dare to actually wake him up? He was wise using a marker pen, i'm not sure a biro would have been quite so effective. A wise man in disguise!
