city gent

i’m sure i remember coming to london when i was young and seeing some city gents in their bowler hats, but since then i’ve only seen one chap wearing a bowler and he was a nutty chap standing on a street corner, shouting religious words to anyone who would listen, after a hard day in the office. but he did look like a genuine bowler wearer.
perhaps when i get to heaven i’ll meet him and tell him i remember him well.
however, yesterday, i spotted this chap with a bowler hat coming out of the Financial Times building. he even put his bowler on for a moment but then whipped it off as he ran for his cab.
from the quality of this shot you can tell i’ve been on a photography course can’t you !
