Barney on The Bus

Photograph copyright David Wills 2008

Here’s his-nibs caught off-guard whilst traveling up front in the A1GGz Bus. He didn’t like having his phisole snapped, so in this shot, having prepared the exposure, forefinger at the ready, I tapped him on the shoulder, with a “Hey, look at this.” The need to surprise him in the portraiture stakes often lead to over the shoulder looks like this – or, if having been trapped into a snap, he has his hand over his mouth, or quite often he is glaring, scowling at the camera in an ‘I’ll get my own back’ look. 1967
