Why John didn’t want to be in this photo

London Bridge walk-5
Henry and John are standing on Tooley Street, London Bridge. “Can I take your photo?”

Henry says yes. John says no.

“He doesn’t want to be in the photo because he used to be a professional photographer,” says Henry. “He worked at The Times for years.”

I ask John: “So don’t you like photos?”

“Yes, but I know what can happen to them.”

“Are you worried about being in a paper?”

“No,” says John, “I’m worried about wanted posters.”

Henry chips in: “That’s right, he’s wanted by the Old Bill all over London.”
