Accosting total strangers can be a daunting experience but also totally rewarding. Opposite is Akuc who was sitting facing out onto Brick Lane from her vantage point in Cereal Killer. May I? Yes!
Akuc is an actress whose credits include 'the Dumping Grounds'. Elsewhere is Anna who I met on her way to 'Halfway to Heaven' for a Karaoke session and Jenna, the athletic Aussie wasn't too keen on having her portrait taken but did want to jump. The delightful Tota runs a tattoo parlour on Hackney Road.
Slone is a local, others are visitors. Thais Muniz is a turban weaver from Brazil, just Google her name and watch her vibrant personality. There's a German art collector, lending a hand and Liz complementing the street art behind. She asked me if I wanted to speak on her 'phone to her Mum. Would have been churlish to say no.
Overcoming shyness, highly recommend.
