two of hearts

two of hearts
f2.8 / focal length 70mm / shutter speed: 1/640s / flash: not fired

...the magician told me that he will change this card (2 of hearts) into an ace of spades.
...i told him, "no i dont think you can do that" as i put down my camera to get ready to argue with him.
...again he told me that he will, ...i shook my head.
"1...2...3..." he counted as if he was shouting.
...the ace of spades appear right before my eyes without him flipping the card around.

...i took my camera and walk away!
