Matt - Stranger # 76 of 100


It is my pleasure to introduce you to Matt who has been singing in Halifax for sixteen years after starting his singing career in Kingston and Toronto, ON. I met Matt while he was singing on the Halifax waterfront. Matt had just quit his dishwashing job to concentrate on his singing, a switch he makes about this time each year. Thank you Matt for agreeing to help me with my photography project. I wish you all the best in your singing career.


Observations: One of the reasons I asked Matt if I could take his picture was the lighting where he was singing. So much of the area is in direct sunlight and I thought shaded area would be helpful in getting a good portrait and I was pleased with the result.


This picture is the 76th portrait in my efforts to complete the required 100 portraits for the portraits of strangers project to help improve my photography skills. Find out more about the project and see pictures taken by other photographers on the 100 Strangers Flickr Group page and on the 100 strangers web site .
