A visit to Stratford-Upon-Avon can result in the Chance meeting with all kinds of characters, from all around the world.

This encounter was bizzare .... the guy, wearing what looked like a Medieval style hat, plus strange, wrist warmers? sitting on the grass, leaning on a tree guzzling red wine from a bottle .....and....he was surrounded by a large group of curious Avon Swans.

I had heard the guy talking to himself and wondered....two things....was he a Shakespearean Actor Rehearsing his lines....or ....just a local drunk?......difficult to tell.....I didnít get too close....but I just had to record the scene.

He was not many yards from the entrance to....The Other Place....The smaller Shakespeare Theatre the town.

Slice of life, a sip of wine, a slice of life, a sip of wine. Nice timing and composition.
