Snapped in Argyll Street Glasgow - I love the juxtaposition of arms.

This was one of those moments when I realised that I had turned into a photographer. I was walking along Argyll street, heading up to a work do at the Celtic Connections festival when I saw this. Now my camera was in my computer bag/rucksack - on my back - so within about 30 secs I had taken the bag off, pulled out the camera, switch it on, focused, realised that the light was so bad that in automatic mode it would use flash, switched to a manual setting and grabbed the shot.

And she never realised I had taken a photo.
