Stranger 9 - Anonymous

May 28, 2011
Memorial Day weekend should be a awesome weekend to get some great stranger photos for my project. As it happened, I found a great indivdual as I was walking down towards the rural development area of town.

When I approached her, she was sitting on a bench with her dog. I asked her if I could take a photo of her for my 100 Strangers project. She happily accepted as long as it wasn't going to cost her anything. She was a little concerned since she still had her curlers in her hair. Told her I actually loved them and would be great addition to my photo. I don't know how they put all those curlers so neatly in their hair. It looks like a nightmare trying to individually place each one.

As I was firing off shots, I wasn't much paying attention to the background and noticed I had a kick-ass brick wall behind her. After I was done snapping off photos of her, she demanded I take a few shots of her pet dog, which I did to be polite.

She refused to give me her name, which was understandable, so I gave her a fake name to go with her personality. Emma is what I'll call her. Emma was sitting in the sun enjoying her afternoon with her dog. As we closed our talk, I asked her if she has a computer or surfs the web, but she actually gave away her computer to her grand-daughter. With that, she kindly refused my card. Thanked her for her time and departed to quench my throat.

Thanks for the photo opportunity, Emma. Enjoy your Memorial Day weekend!
