Taking Photos Of Strangers: Part III

Then, sometimes, you find a stranger who wants you to take his photo....

This guy calls himself the Vegabond Pirate and describes himself as a professional television/movie extra. He tells me he has appeared on the TV shows Zena: Warrior Princess, and Hercules: The Legendary Journeys - and of course, you can't be a professional extra in New Zealand without appearing in Lord of the Rings. He was quite the entertainer and was quick to show me some of his skills with juggling balls and nunchucks, and show me photos he was carrying in his pocket.....now, here's a guy who's always focused on marketing and promoting his character (I didn't have the heart to tell him I'm just an amateur photographer and wasn't likely to lead to any work). I took a few photos of him juggling and such, but this was by far my favourite image. Somewhere between his amusing antics he stopped for just a moment - and smiled, a real smile - and he suddenly became 3 dimensional.....
