#1 The Man in Parliament Square

A Chance (Second) Meeting

And there he was. An old man wearing a newsboy cap and a big coat. His white hair stuck out from under his cap in tufts and there were bags under his bright eyes.

We found Ian sitting in the shadow of the statue of George Canning with his easel and a small Union Jack flag. He was working on a watercolor of Big Ben.

Just as I snapped a picture of him, he turned around and saw us.  

He said hello and we started talking.
