Peter & Noel

Out shooting in Cardiff and I saw Peter & Noel, two dapper gents sitting on a bench on The Hayes in Cardiff, in the sunshine.

Peter & Noel are my #12 & #13 in my 100 Strangers Project. You can read the full description of our meeting and if you would like, see the previous 11 by clicking the 100 Strangers Project link on the menu bar above.

All the shots were taken using my Nikon D7000 and Nikkor 85mm 1.8d.

Prior to taking the shot for the 100 Strangers I had taken a candid of them.

Peter & Noel #12 & #13

As I was shooting them sitting on the bench for the main shot, I said “You can speak to each other”, and they went straight into conversation.

Noel then asked if I wanted him to stand next to the tree and lift his leg and roll up his trouser leg for a shot.

What a great pair of guys. You really brightened my afternoon. Can’t wait to see you again.
