The Charles Dickens Museum is in the house in which the writer once lived in Doughty Street, London WC1. You can see the blue plaque on the wall reflected in the puddle. One wet day I was taking photographs for reference, my camera pointed at puddles on the pavement. A pair of feet appeared in the viewfinder. I waited patiently for them to pass by. They didn't. They stopped and a voice asked: 'Jim Kelso, what on earth are you doing?' It was the son of a friend. It would have taken too long to explain. He probably still thinks I'm odd. The original painting sold from the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition later that year.
