Stranger 69/100 - Stephen

Newer Older

I approached Stephen on the patio at Wonderland Ballroom today during our DC Social Flickr Meet-up. From where I was standing I just liked the way he was wearing his hood up and thought he'd probably make a great subject. It wasn't until I sat down and introduced myself did I notice his amazing eyes. He assured me they aren't contacts, but naturally gray.

Stephen is originally from Leeds, England but came to the States about 12 years ago where he admitted it was quite an adjustment. He now happily resides in DC and works as an IT Specialist. He and his friends were super friendly and this photo might end up being one of my favorites of the series. Thanks, Stephen!

    I joined flickr some time before, but not used the functions for long time.
    This photo was the first one which touched me in a way that I had the urge that I must 'fav' it. Now, after few months, it still gives me a good feeling when I look at it.
    Thank you for this photo.
