Former Wimbledon football club hardman Vinnie Jones was visiting Jersey for a charity dinner, and I was given only a few minutes to set up and take my shot.

I tried to get a contrast to the hardman image of the poster behind. Despite my best efforts he would not laugh, or even smile. In fact, he would not even reply to my comments.

With a wide angle lens inches from his nose I asked "This isn't too close is it ?". Silence. No change of expression. "I'll take that as a no then" I replied to my own question. Yet another picture that keeps the hardman image alive. You can't win them all.
