Stranger 8 - Patrick

May 22, 2011
I thought to myself, maybe if I travel down to the town square on a sunny Sunday mid afternoon, I would find a bunch of great people to choose from for my stranger project. I walked down and sat on the bench to wait for my choosings.

...And waited. I felt like this wasn't going to be my day. While I was baking in the sun and watching all the people in their air conditioned cars drive by, I decided to pack it up and head home. Walked around the corner of the cafe shop and look and behold a gentleman was out reading on his labtop. I passed him thinking to myself how I should approach him. I got fed up with myself trying to rationalize the process and manned the hell up. Turned back around and walked right up to him.

"Excuse sir, I was wondering if I could take your photo?"

Without any hesitation or question why, he simply looked up at me with a big smile and said,


Everyone, I would like you to meet Patrick. Patrick had an awesome camo hat and great facial features.

Told him it was my 100 Stranger project and he seem thrilled to be part of it. Patrick was out on a beautiful Sunday afternoon catching up on some reading on his labtop. Said it was a relief to have a sunny day to go out and relax.

Told him to keep doing what he was doing while I snap a few shots. I thanked him for his time and gave him my art card. He was more than eager to check it out.

Thanks so much, Patrick! You've been a tremendous help to this project. Please enjoy this photo and the readings.
