Angel came into my life as a cutie running around outside her parents Indian Takeaway near the office where I work. Her parents have recently moved here from India and she has fully integrated into the local school becoming part of the youthful energy there. She was resting in a big armchair in the cafe while her parents served customers when I seized the opportunity to talk to her.
She happily posed for me and I quickly captured a few images to work from at home. As it was to be a gift to her parents I didn’t want to spoil the surprise by staying too long.
Angel with her enigmatic smile is wearing her school uniform ‘fleecy’ which she is proud to wear in her new adopted country.
Her parents were overwhelmed to receive the surprise and Angel’s portrait hangs with enormous pride on the wall in their cafe. I think they will call their cafe after her.
“Angel’s Heavenly Food” maybe?
