Shooting on location in Stratford upon Avon,this gentleman asked to talk to me, he spent a while explaining that he knew many things about me and seemed very reasonable, so I spent time to listen he made a prediction that I would have good news in October 2014 that would change my life . He agreed to have his portrait taken, but after one frame he became very agittated and left . I did recieve good news in October on the day he predicted .Mystic ? or just a great face that wanted to be photographed ?
