portraits & snippets: Nick

Almost exactly 3 years after he became Stranger No.24 in my portrait project, I met Nick again by chance in the walled garden at Hinton Ampner.

He is still working there as a volunteer and was happy to have his photo taken. And obviously very happy to be a National Trust volunteer.

His story here:

He doesn’t seem to have changed much...but I would say that, wouldn’t, I? How lovely to meet him again. I wonder if you’ve met any/many other 'previous' strangers again too?

I don’t think he has changed either. Yes I have met quite a few people at the almshouses at St Cross again, a lady at the garden centre, buskers in Winchester etc. These are just a few who come to mind - thank you for asking the question! I do tend to frequent the same local haunts!

How wonderful for both of you to meet again.

He looks to be such a charming and approachable man! There's a reason people volunteer in such wonderful places, and one, I think, is that they enjoy meeting people!

I would love to more about your project... I've been thinking of doing something similar .. possibly with pets or people.

I bet he remembered you Hazel, not easy to forget someone with a camera & a friendly face & way of asking! So lovely to catch up with your subjects again!

Maybe getting the second picture is easier.

Always good to see strangers again

Lovely to see Nick again after 3 years I expect he was surprised to see you too.
