Stranger #74: Alana

This picture is #74 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

See my first set here: Bomvu's 100 Strangers"


I was getting tired out by all the crowds so I headed to the back streets to see if I could find some quieter shooting opportunities.

When I spotted Alana, she was chatting to a friend and there was no one else around. Perfect.

As luck would have it, as soon as I started taking her picture, this funny old vagrant appeared from no where and started walking between us asking me to take his picture. Grrr. Anyway, he soon latched onto Alana's friend instead and I took a nice 'couple' shot of them. that's not for the project though.

Alana is expecting her first baby in December. I mentioned that I've been through the breeding process twice and she asked how it was. I said AWESOME and she smiled.

Thanks Alana and best of luck with the little one.
