Seen in.... Westbourne Green, London - Double Bass Man

05th April 2018


If you are a local around the Paddington/Notting Hill area you may have seen this charismatic musician playing his double-bass on the streets. I'm not really one for taking photos of 'street performers' and musicians playing as such. I much prefer candid shots of interesting people like that when they are 'off-duty' as it were.

I have seen him walking around the neighbourhood with his double-bass only a handful times over the years, but have only ever caught a photo that I liked once before in the Portobello Road area and that was in 2011! Today was a lovely warm, sunny day in London - is Spring really finally here? On my stroll across to Notting Hill Gate, I decided to change my usual walking route to follow a sunnier path. As I turned a corner, who do I see walking up the road towards me?! Armed with just my iPhone I took the opportunity to grab another shot. I love when those moments of fate happen.
