Trafalgar Square. Joiner created by Mark Murfitt © 2014 . All rights reserved.

Trafalgar Square, London

Here’s a little known fact about Trafalgar Square, the chap on top of Nelson’s column (Horatio Nelson :) is just over 17ft tall, which is ironic considering he was a little over 5ft tall in real life.. :)

When I shot this joiner the guy in the foreground, with the orange square on the back of his teashirt just wouldn’t move, I waited and waited but he wouldn’t budge, so I decided to shoot the piece anyway and see if there was anyway I could make him disappear in post production. However, once the joiner was together I really quite liked him as some foreground detail, and now most people seem to comment on his presence, I’m not sure why, but he does raise quite some interest…I could maybe call him ‘the orange man’
