One photo a day in October 2011–Day 4

I’ve had to work from home today.  While taking my photos for Day 1 of my challenge on Saturday I was bitten on my right leg by some insects.  My leg has since swelled up like a balloon and yesterday I was in a lot of pain and walked with a pronounced limp.  So today I decided to work laying on my sofa with my leg up to give my leg a chance to recover.  And after a morning of doing that (and two days running of taking anti-histamines) my leg is now much better.

Working from home meant that I couldn’t head over to the Students Union for my stranger photo.  Instead I headed to the village post office!  And this where I took today’s photo.

He was queuing ahead of me at the counter and he seemed like a character.  So I asked, he said yes and the rest is history.  He wasn’t keen about hanging around so he was in the middle of saying good bye as I took the shot – usually I take 2 or 3 photos of my subject just in case of closed eyes or something else unexpected that might ruin the shot.  But not with this fella – he was off and out of the post office quick as a flash!  Luckily the shot was perfect so I was lucky.

You can see the photos the other 122 people taking a photo a day for October by heading over to the flickr group here: October 2011: A month in 31 pictures.  I’d recommend that you do as there are some amazing photos being taken!
