    Some of you
    might
    remember about a month ago I posted this picture
    [​IMG]

    well I had asked him if i could take it as he was walking to his car from
    starbucks
    .

    So today I'm out riding my bike going someplace and I see him sitting at a table and I go up and he remembers me. We talked for a few minutes and I said I was aspiring to be a director of photography for feature films. So anyways this guy is an actor and said he would try and get me on a set so I can see how it's really done. So we exchanged e-mails and it was pretty cool. Anyone else have an
    experience
    like
    this?

    Haha I'd respect a guitar player more than a DJ anyway.

    Wow, nice story

    Especially because I was just thinking about that exact shot today, and how I can never work myself up to ask an interesting-looking stranger if I can snap 'em, and you did with one of the most stereotypically interesting types out there. Nice.

    Well, I once took a photo of a 14-year old Romanian busker, and conversation with him was a bit halting, what with his non-existent knowledge of my language, but he still agreed to my taking his pic --- which I showed up here, but somehow he could never see it.

    Months later I saw him play his accordeon in front of one of "my" shops where I do my grocery shopping, and I said hallo and said "Photo! Photo! Remember?" and somehow he seemed to both understand AND remember, and I went back in the afternoon and brought him the print as present. I think that was the least I could do. (And throw some money into his cardboard box every time I went past him with my trolley).
