I used to be Famous

By JaneMIchelle
I saw Vinney as I was driving home from work one night and was passing back on my way to a meeting about 10 minutes later so grabbed my camera and stopped and asked if I could take his picture............What I didn't expect was his story in the short time I took getting some snaps of him learnt that in 1986 he was in the final of New Faces as a double act, and had supported many of the greats including Morcambe and Wise, he told me he had got carried away with alcohol and had ended up living in a bin for a year

Although I have taken many pictures of re-enactors......this is the first time I have plucked up the courage to ask a total stranger in the street. This is the picture I saw as I drove past ......which I got him to recreate for me..........More close up character portraits to follow.

Life is like that - and photography is about recording those special moments, both good and bad.

I hope that you'll be doing more pictures of strangers, and that they will all work as wel las this one has.
