'I am Mick Jagger' - he said !

Posted by
Mariana Maoduš (Waterloo, Canada) on 2 June 2009 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

I met this guy on Blues Festival in my city . He came to me and said -" Hi Barbara Streisand ! So nice to finally meet you. I am Mick Jagger". Funny, crazy guy, isn't he ?!!!!

"The moment always dictates in my work. What I feel, I do. This is the most important thing for me. Everybody can look, but they don't necessarily see. I never calculate or consider; I see a situation and I know that it's right, even if I have to go back to get the proper lighting."

@jhcibils: Thanks a lot . That is my fav portrait ever :)) I was on a street where a blues festival took a place . This guy was close to me and staring at me all the time . When I smiled at him, he came to me and asked if I am Barbra Streisand . Funny. Then he said he is a Mick Jagger and started dancing and posing , imitating a real Jagger :)) Sorry to say, but this guy did not seem to me ok. A little bit nutz for sure :))
