Arnold Town's Number 1 Fan by phil_howcroft

Arnold Town's Number 1 Fan

I often see this gentleman around Arnold, sat outside New Look, sat outside the market, watching Arnold Town football club (semi professional non league football)

I don't know his name but I often strike up an "hello how are you / who are Arnold playing next" when I see him.

He was sat outside Halfords on Wednesday evening when I was walking Ruby.

I had my little chat with him and then asked can I take your photo. I don't normally shoot portraits with a 28mm lens, but decided to give it a go. 28mm looks OK to me :)

He's come out very well indeed - it's not the lens Phil, it's the photographer! (In my case it's the lens ...)

Excellent work Phil. that encourages me to post my stranger #27, who's missing from the list, because he's kind of "simple minded" if you know what I mean. But I have TINY BACK SORY AND HIS name. So I will! Fav

He looks a little like Bill Bailey. Good shot Phil.
