South korean resident

This stranger spoke no english. She's the friend of stranger #34, both who I met at the Melbourne Royal Botanic gardens. When shooting her I ignored that she spoke no english, figuring that even if she didn't understand me just talking would keep her engaged. Helpfully though her friend translated as I spoke. She told me that she was enjoying her time in Melbourne and her highlight had been the shopping.

 

Once I was done they asked me if the photos where to be shown at an exhibition. I was pretty amused by the idea but explained that they'd be up online at flickr. They were keen to get the address so they could see how they turn out. So ladies, if you're reading this, thanks letting me take your pictures. I hope you like them.

 

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