Caretaker Hyde Park, London, in 1985, by Gerardo Simonetti

I visited Hyde Park, London, in November of 1985. It was late afternoon and freezing cold. The man walking along seemed to be from a different era. Yet to me he seemed to fit perfectly in the frame, walking along the path with the late afternoon sun gently breaking through the tree tops above him.
