The Pin Trading Olympian

Category: Travel Portraits


Photo and caption by lin luo

This is Leonard Braun, 60+ years old, from LA, a pin trading enthusiast for almost 30 years. He has been to every Olympic game ever since the Summer Olympics 1984 at LA. In fact, he has lost count of pins he has collected. Neither could he point out his favourite. "100 Meter Freestyle Pin Trading was what went through my mind, when I had this made myself" Leonard smiled proudly while holding the medal in front of his chest when I asked. In a sense, Leonard is a true sportsman, an Olympian!

Location: Stradford, London, UK
