Stranger 3 - Harrison
May 13, 2011
The weather forecast for the weekend was calling for nothing but crummy showers, so I had to make use of my Friday the 13th and try to find a subject for my stranger project.
The sun was setting fast and I was loosing available light. I had to find somebody. Then bam! I found these college buddies hanging out enjoying ice cream cones. I was actually pretty nervous since this was going to be my first actually asking for someone's photo. The last two were expected on the current situation. As soon as I saw them sitting on the bench, I told my girlfriend to wait for a moment while I ask these guys.
"Excuse gentlemen? I was wondering if anyone of you could help me out?"
They looked at me particular with my 105mm Nikkor Micro.
I told them I was working on a new personal photography project and wanted to see if any of them would mind if I took their photos. They all hesitated for a moment and then said, "sure" (Well I kinda had to push it a bit.)!
I took all their photos chowing down on their ice cream cones, until I came to this individual. His name is Harrison. He seemed a little camera shy when I asked him, but his buddies egged him on and eventually, peer pressure won. I told him I wasn't looking for anything spectatular, so he licked his cone while his buddies were trying to make him laugh.
Thanks Harrison! I hope the photo wasn't too bad for you. Enjoy your photo and cone, man!
