Mexican Street Photographer and Fortune Teller

This is Lupe.
He's a street photographer and fortune teller in Nuevo Progreso, Mexico. We met at a taco cart when he offered to take my photo and tell me my fortune. How could I say no?!

After my reading and photo, we took a few steps away to this metal gate that perfectly matched his shirt and snapped this portrait.

Best tacos I've had in years.

So tell us, if you would, what was your reading?
Pretty good pic and story!

Oh, the reading was a bargain: lucky numbers, lifespan, health warnings, and aura colors (I’m apparently “King of all the colors,” so I’ve got that going for me). And I’m to start wearing a special gemstone for some reason. ;)

Mexico's Louis Mendes?

I wish... my portrait was a blur. He dragged the shutter after the flash.
