20/100 Strangers (Round II).
Once I'd finished work I got myself out. Strangers needed finding and I wanted some air, the weather was too good to stay inside. I was nearing the town centre when I saw my stranger N°20 sitting outside a restaurant and his wild hairdo caught my eye straight away along with his orange T-shirt. He didn't look as though he was going anywhere so I asked if he had some time. He did, but not a lot. So I explained the project to him and he agreed to be part of it.
Meet Stephen, he's 23 and works for an Admin responsible for the telephone lines. He was born in Etampes and hasn't lived anywhere else. When it came to taking his photo, he hardly ever looked at the camera, besides in the main photo and needed a smoke in the comment shot. Do I stress my strangers that much ?!
While I was taking a couple of spare shots a load of his friends came up and joined him, they were all part of the animation that we are having around town this weekend and were in a hurry to get moving. When Stephen isn't working he enjoys taking part in fêtes, loves music and going out with his friends.
I would have liked to have tried for some better photos, but he was really being pushed by his friends to get moving. I quickly gave him a card so he would be able to look for his photo. A bit of a rushed meeting but he was a friendly guy.
Here's the link to my first 100 strangers.
