Stranger #89

Now, this guy makes me smile.

 

I was on my way to go grocery shopping (that's when I seem to find some of my coolest strangers, so I always bring the camera), when I met... Kazufumi Okano. He wrote that down for me, so I would get the spelling correct.

 

At a first glimpse, I thought he looked pretty exotic. He had some kind of "Karate Kid aura" that I fell for. Also a little bit of "casual samurai". (Yes, it's these kind of weird terms that go through my mind when I see and meet strangers.) I hope I don't sound offensive in any way, because what I'm trying to say is the total opposite. He looked so rad and photogenic, I just had to ask him for a picture.

 

Kazufumi is living in Auckland, but is originally from Japan. He's working at a backpacker hostel downtown. Such an awesome and happy meeting. Kazufumi--I hope you like your picture!
