157-100 Raechelle (Explored!)

I was hanging around in Swanston St for a while watching the world pass me by. This remarkable looking individual strolled past me and I just knew I had to get her photograph.


Off I went , caught up to her and explained what I was up to in shooting strangers. This is Raechelle – at first she protested “I’m not very photogenic”. I explained that is what everyone says but in her case it was not even remotely close. I was salivating at the prospect of photographing such a bold looking woman.


You don’t very often see a completely bald female. I must admit I was too apprehensive to ask why – looks to be alopecia to me, but I didn’t want to embarrass her or myself.


So again thank you Raechelle, you have become #157 in my ongoing strangers project. Find out more about the project and see pictures taken by other photographers at the 100 Strangers Flickr Group page
