8/100 The Chicken Dance

This is Greg. I had photographed him with his permission earlier in the day as he sold trinkets on the street. His portrait from earlier in the day seemed rather posed, although he tried his best, on his own accord, to look natural.


However, when the Itinerant Locals (7/100) began to play "The Chicken Dance" Greg lost his composure. Geg knew I was photographing him dancing, and I think he was dancing as much for me as he was for the musicians.


Afterwards, it was Greg who engaged the punky duo in conversation, and almost blocked me from taking their portrait as a family.


The Chicken Dance is number eight in my 100 Strangers project. Find out more about the project and see pictures taken by other photographers at the flickr group page.
