baby steps...

...into my strangers project. This is Hannah.

 

I'm so chicken but so wanting to start a strangers project. I got up the courage to ask this kind stranger today if I could take a picture of her boots, and in retrospect, that might have been weirder than asking to take her portrait (hello foot fetish? she could have thought!). She obliged and I gave her my card and we got to chatting. It is certainly a fun way to strike up a conversation and meet some interesting people!

 

So, I was wondering, for those of you who do a strangers project, what's the craziest story you have about asking a stranger if you may take their photo? Maybe it will help me get past my fear to know that no one got yelled at or made someone cry!

 

This picture is #1 in my 100 strangers project. Find out more about the project and see pictures taken by other photographers at http://www.100strangers.com/
