Stranger #100

    Newer Older

    I was walking along Orchard when I saw her walking towards my direction. She was wearing a simple one-piece dress, and was quite tall almost towering over most of the people around her. I wasn't decided yet if I wanted to shoot her, but as I got closer, I knew I had to - she had this subtle angelic charm. My heart started to pound... it always does whenever I'm about to approach a stranger for their portrait. I stopped her and asked if I could take her picture. She smiled and said "Oh, street style." I chuckled a "yeah...", relieved that she understood what I was doing. She said yes. After I took a few shots, I thanked her and she went on her way. I noticed my hands were slightly shivering. It's funny coz this was my 100th stranger and I still get the shivers. Maybe it was because it's been almost 3 weeks since I last approached a stranger. Or maybe it was because I knew I had a keeper shot.

    This is my 100th stranger. I started this project thinking I'll stop at 100... but I figured I really loved doing this so I might as well go on to shoot more... but not regularly, though. Just when I have some free time, or I happen to have my camera in my hands and see a stranger with a great face. In the meantime, I'm still brewing up a new project to work on.

    I also still have some faces in queue to show, so please still watch out for those. Thank you guys for all the comments and support!

    This is really highly recommended to be seen large on black
