Photograph taken while walking along the beach at Southend.

Had wanted to photograph the subject in the coat for a while. The fur lined hood reminded me on a famous photo taken by David Bailey of Mick Jagger.

Using a 35mm lens to get in the surrounding scene I just asked the subject to look up. I love the combination of backdrop and subject. The fact that the face is partly hidden adds a sense of mystery.

The sense of capturing the moment was enhanced by the news a few weeks later the car park in the background has been completely demolished and that this photo could never be repeated.
