This is the very first time I asked a stranger if I could make a portrait of them. It was at Camden Market and I saw this guy and just had to have a portrait of him - I took a deep breath and walked up to him and asked. Such a nice guy, he smiled and said "sure".  I don't remember if we talked about anything else, we may have done but the nerves probably erased my memory. It was a turning point for me, photographically.
