Does he look threatening? He probably isn't, but how do you know? It looks like he has menace in his eyes. People make all kinds of wrong assumptions don't they?
One A Day Portrait of London, from photographers across the city

I found it hard to choose one out of Patrick's fantastic set from Speakers' Corner in London.
They are all taken on a perfect crisp London day - the photos not only reflect the wonderful range of eccentric characters at Speakers' Corner but also the crisp January weather.

I don't know what it is but I just love portraits taken on the tube. Either ones like this, of a friend of the photographer, or random ones too.
I reckon not a single week will go by without at least one tube portrait.
it's the way all the colours are so complimentary, and the expert choice of depth of field here.
All dressed up and off to see the Hockney exhibition, I met these lovely ladies on the steps of the National Portrait Gallery.
Great outfits girls.
The Hockney exhibition was very inspiring, besides from the stunning paintings he experimented with photography for a few years. His interesting take on things was to do portrait-collages which are fabulous - portraits made up of several images all patched together. despite the fact that the pieces did not match perfectly you still get that sense of a person's character so obviously Hockney.

A great project, Dee is a photography student and in her project she is going round London's Lidos.
At this time of year, she must be really cold.
this particular shot is at Ruislip Lidom which had fallen into disrepair like many other london lidos.

Eamon (www.eamonlane.com) has a great eye for interesting people on the streets of London. His blog is worth following as he's always got new projects up his sleeve. All five of the next photos are taken by him on his various film cameras. Experimenting as always, long may it continue!

My new year was spent with several australians moving back there, some brits going there too, and three couples getting married in the next few months.
These are Kate and Simon, getting married in a few months' time. It was an optimistic way to spend New Year.

Contribute in our Flickr group, and a portrait from there will be selected for the blog.
We'd also like to publish the project outside of the blog.
