Stranger #001: Hurdy of Indonesia

This is stranger #1 in my 100 strangers project. Find out more about the project and see pictures taken by other photographers at the flickr.com/groups/100strangers

 

Stranger #001/100 is Hurdy, a 53 years old, Indonesian whom I met last weekend. He is a man of the street as his income comes from this shoe repairs' stall on the paveway. Before we have a chat, I explain to him my reason of taking his photos and he respond with "Are you a reporter? I told him that I am not and told him that I am a student to lean more about about street photography photography and eager to make more friends in the process. He said, "Ok, sure can but I am not handsome." During our chat, he revealed to me that he came to Malaysia 30years ago and he had been here ever since, legally. We talk about food and sickness. Before we part, he remind me of health food and healthy living with frequent exercise. Thank you, Encik H.U.R.D.Y. (That's how he spells his own name to me.)
