Stranger #56: Michelle

This picture is #56 in my second 100 strangers project. Find out more about the project and see pictures taken by other photographers at the 100 Strangers Flickr Group page

I had to pop into Redhill this afternoon so thought it best to bring my camera. I've been quite busy on the photography front lately but haven't photographed a stranger for what seems like ages. I thought it would be good to warm up before the 100 Strangers meetup in London tomorrow and when I spotted Michelle standing in a door way looking at her phone I decided that she would be the perfect subject.

I asked her if she'd pose for me and she answered "sure, if you want to" like it didn't matter one way or another.

I asked her to move over to the other side of the pavement to get a bit of the local 'scenery' into the background and snapped off a couple of shots.

Michelle wasn't very chatty but told me that she was waiting for her mum.

I thanked her, gave her a card and headed off. Well thanks Michelle for being a part of my project and I hope you like the picture!


Constructive criticism gratefully received
