Nice shot, and i think that's usually the 'right way for us to get that types of shot.

This past Friday I was in London on a quick business trip. While eating
lunch with fellow LUGger Sal diMarco I spotted this guy with his very
cute dog arranging himself in the drizzle outside, and wrapping his
blanket around the dog to protect it from the rain. I asked him if I
could take a picture of the two of them, and he answered yes
unconditionally. I did give him 1 pound afterwards.

I no longer shoot homeless people sleeping on benches etc., I find that
a bit dishonest, not real street photography. This one is significant
for me because I actually asked the person to pose, something I am
ordinarily too shy to do. Perhaps the influence of sitting with a real
life photojournalist helped me get my courage up...

See at: 

and comments are welcome and appreciated as always.
