The Advertising Executive

“So, what do you do for a living then?”  “I’m in advertising, innit…”

Here’s an old image.  It was December, 2004 and I was stalking the streets of Edinburgh one afternoon, with my very first Digital SLR, a Nikon D70, (before that I’d relied on my Nikon FM2 and a Bronica 645), when I noticed this utterly dejected figure, standing in the bitterly cold wind, advertising pub lunches.  Yet at the same time – he’s reading a paperback, folded in his hands!

I couldn’t resist a shot and here’s the result:
