Harpist Brenda Malloy busking outside Trinity College Dublin. I took this photograph for a magazine in Washington DC., but was rushing to another meeting plus a friendly german man approached me to talk cameras.. I didn’t get a chance to talk to the harpist, so I didn’t know her name. However, I realised later that I had a contact on flickr that is a harpist, so I emailed her, hoping she might know the College Green musician.

Typically, "Diogenes 24" on flickr.com turned out to be the very person I’d photographed – Brenda Malloy!
