Famous Stranger Nigel Mansell

I got very lucky with this shot, as Nigel was in great demand with queues of enthusiasts and photographers around him. My friend tapped me on the shoulder and pointed behind me, He had just got out of the car that had taken him along Broad Street and was standing there on his own, he was really nice and a real gentleman, and I was for once speechless

 

These photos were taken last year but I put them to one side as I had made arrangements for Olympic Bronze Medal Cyclist Tommy Godwin to be my 100th Stranger and I was meeting him a few days later.
