This woman was peacefully sleeping at Marks and Spencer in Lewisham. As I saw her I was at some distance from her, a line of clothes between us, I took out my little pocket sketchbook and started, it felt like birdwatching. As soon as I had sketched this one, another old lady, spotting her and thinking that that was a great idea, sat on the chair next to her and tried to let herself go too. Unfortunately she only managed to disturb the first one who, understandably irritated by the copycat, stood up and flew away.
