    Stranger #3: While heading back from the lookout point (see stranger #2 for more details about that) I saw a higher point which looked like it would have an even better view. It was a bit off the beaten path so I had to climb up on a very narrow trail. When I got to the top I saw a small shed but also a very nice view. While I was taking some pictures of the view I hear some noise behind me and when I turned around this lady was standing in the doorway of the shed. She walked over and signed me to come inside. I wasn’t too sure about that, heard all kinds of strange noises coming from inside. It must have been some animal, like a dog or pig or something. So I said thank you very much and pointed to the view and that I really liked it. She smiled and agreed. I then asked if I could take her picture, she smiled again and looked into the camera. Before saying goodbye we both admired the view a bit more. On the way down I did kind of regret not going inside that would have been some experience.

    To continue my strangers series I went out for the first time here in Amsterdam to find some interesting people. I must say that I was a little nervous but it ended up being quite fun, found three people who agreed to have their portrait taken in about 30min time. Looking forward to doing this more often.

      Amazing shot, you have such guts to actually approach a subject and ask to take their picture. it doesnt sound like a hard thing to do yet i have always had trouble with it.

      Seen on your photo stream. (?)
