Stranger #13 of 100: Jeff

Explored

This was made to be viewed huge on black. click it and nuzzle his beard

 

Jeff here was... eccentric to say the least. I went down to Zilly's with Tom to hang out with Jill and such. The moment I saw Jeff here, I knew I had to meet him. He's a cyclist (helmet strap mark on his forehead), he's adamant about washing hands to avoid bacteria, and chock full of great stories. He had to be THE most chill person I've shot for my 100Strangers project, with no qualms about getting photographed. The whole time he talked to us about... everything from Leica cameras, WWII, to Jews and crucifixion. Very animated, and who knows, if I manage to spot him cycling again this summer I might just grab a coffee and listen to him talk for hours again.

 

Strobist Info: 430EX bounced into folded white reflector camera high left. Triggered via Cybersyncs. muchos gracias to Tom for being my awesomely human lightstand.

 

P.S. Shot on 4/20, check his pupils, you think he's joined in the festivities?
