bristol photography

i discovered jonathan taphouse on twitter and have been a fan of his documentary photography ever since. a few weeks ago he posted this photo on flickr. for more of his stuff see here and he also does wedding photography here.

his caption read: 'BRISTOL: cycling offence -This gentleman cut across two lanes of moving traffic on his pushbike. Cursing and waving at the cars as they slowed and tooted!! ...what he didn't realise was that one of the cars was a police officer. Busted!!'

i told jonathan i was sure this was the big issue seller based outside tesco on whiteladies rd and jonathan suggested i show him the picture.
the other day, i asked him (the big issue seller - i don't know his name) how he was. not good as he'd been mugged on stokes croft the evening before and had a large bruise. i bought him some biscuits and showed him jonathan's photo on my iPhone. he was thrilled and let me take a picture of him to show jonathan his approval :)
