74/100 Strangers Project | Dionne.
So, this is Dionne. I met Dionne while at Millennium Park. I immediately noticed her hair in twists and her french manicured polished toes. She looked like she just left a salon. I walked up to her and complimented her appearance, then I asked her if she would be a part of the project. She smiled, agreed, and this photo was taken.
