Ian ~ Stranger 22/100

Whilst in England I didn't get much of a chance to go shooting for strangers. But I was determined to get out at least once! So a couple of days before I was due to fly back to L.A. I went into the town for about an hour or so intent on adding to my stranger project. Unfortunately I got turned down left and right, I don't know why, maybe my British accent doesn't work as well there as it does in The States :-) ... the one I was most disappointed about was a lovely young lady with her hair in these massive rollers. She looked fabulous but she said "No! not with my hair in rollers!!"I tried to convince her that she looked great in them... but to no avail... oh well.

 

Thankfully Ian saved the day for me and agreed! Thank you Ian, I wanted to have some British influence in my stranger project and you made it happen!

 

Lesson learned? It's not always easy... but don't give up :)
