Colin - Stranger 1 of 100

Colin - Stranger 1 of 100
The story of how I met Colin is quite interesting so allow me to elaborate - if you're not in too much of a hurry. . .

My plan was to go to the local lakes and convince a fisherman to allow me to take their picture, however after spending some time shooting a pair of geese and their new gosling I came across a large net, sort of like a badminton net that reached to the ground. In the net I spotted a bird that was trapped and couldn't escape so I downed the camera bag and set about trying to release the hapless creature from the net.

After a few minutes Colin and his friend came by and explained that they had set the net specifically with the intention of trapping and ringing local birds as they were part of the local conservation society - queue much embarrassment.

But Colin was very understanding and deftly removed the female blackbird. It was at this point that I plucked up the courage to explain my new 100 Strangers project and asked if I could take his picture. He agreed and suggested we have the bird in the frame too.

So this is the result of #1 in my new 100 Strangers Project.
