Everything

At first I walked past this gal. The way she was dressed caught my attention but didn't make enough of an impact for me to ask her. And then she gave me a faint little smile and I was sold. I did a double take and went back to her. She was standing with an older lady, who I assume was her mother. As I approached her on one side she turned the other way, casually looking around. So I was left looking at her back, waiting for her to turn around again, while her mother eyed me cautiously. I only had to wait awkwardly for a couple of moments before she turned and I asked away.

 

At first she wanted to know what the photo was for and I launched into my normal explanation "I'm trying to take 100 photos of 100 different strangers in 100 days... except it'll be 101 because I didn't get anyone on Christmas". She smiled at that and said "That's fair enough". I snapped a few shots and we casually chatted about how she was in the city shopping while the sales where on. When I asked what she wanted to buy up she said "Everything!".

 

This is the thirty second portrait of my attempt at the 100 strangers project.
