Adelle - Stranger # 77 of 100
It is my pleasure to introduce you to Adelle who like Matt (Stranger # 76) was singing on the Halifax waterfront. Adelle was standing in the middle of the dock in the hot noon day sun playing her ukulele and singing to entertain the tourists as they passed by. She caught my eye because of her youthfulness and her enthusiasm. I asked Adelle what was unique about her and she told me she is a Christian and loves singing. She is still attending high school and she would like to pursue a career in music. I asked her where I could direct folks to learn more about her and her music and she directed me to her YouTube channel www.youtube.com/watch?v=htQgy0OQwy4 . If you like her picture please check out her music and encourage her in her music career. Thank you Adelle for agreeing to help me with my photography project and all your best in pursuing your music career.
Observations: Unlike stranger # 76 who was in the shade, Adelle was in bright direct sunlight and there was really no good option for getting out of the sun. I used a shallow depth of field to blur the background and tried my best to tone down the effects of the bright sun with Lightroom.
This picture is the 77th portrait in my efforts to complete the required 100 portraits for the portraits of strangers project to help improve my photography skills.
