Stranger Portrait No. 41

I walked through the city on this sunday afternoon, hoping to find anyone tho photograph, but I did not expect many people to be out there.


Luckily, I was not completely wrong, and I saw two girls on the sidewalk behind me, walking in the same direction as me. In searching for the right persons, I often turn around to see who is right behind me. So that’s the reason I saw these two. I stopped and waited until they reached me, and then asked them if I could thake their pictures, after explaining my project. When they agreed, i was happy and asked them to go a few steps to the middle of the road, where no cars, but just trams circulate, and on sundays, very infrequently. But it just happend that we saw one turning the corner, so we had to wait a bit. Therefore we had a little time to chat and for me to find out, that they both study pharmacy right in Würzburg.


After the tram passed by, I made my single portraits and offered them to make one of them together. That’s when I noticed, and even more when I was looking through the images back home, that she was much taller than her friend. Anyway, thanks a lot for the pictures.


I will probally stick for a while to this new format, since the feedback on the last one was very positive.
