I came across this man whilst walking along the canal in Birmingham, He had a very calm and relaxed mannerism. I told him that I have been photographing around Birmingham for the past few months and he was interested in my ideas.
He said that he lives on the canal on a boat, explaining the difference of freedom. From living in the concrete jungle to a completely open path of water with no distractions or things in the way!
This man was very open and the encounter was important as it gave me an insight into different living conditions within Birmingham as well as the country.
