Stranger 9/100 - Mereana

I'd just popped straight out the door and was heading up the hill with the intention to grab lunch and then look for a stranger. Then I saw Mereana head down the hill past me - with her amazing moko and teeth I had to do a quick U-turn to ask for her photo. She was happy to pose (and had her daughter egging her on!). I've always thought it would be nice to get a photo of a Māori woman with her moko - can't imagine a nicer lady to agree.

 

Thanks Mereana - made my day. Hope you had a good day in town...
