Stranger 11 - Melissa

June 1, 2011
After work, decided to head down to Sippo Lake to catch the sunset and possibly rack another stranger on the way. The sun was shining bright, bright on the lake. It was certainly relaxing.

I decided to walk over to the other side of the lake to get away from the fishermen. I would hate to bother someone while there fishing and scare away their dinner.

I was caught in a phone conversation, when I spotted a young woman walking near a bench by the lake with several bags. She unpacked her gear and flopped out her laptop. As I looked closer, it was a MacBook. I knew she was cool since she was using the world's best electronics.

Please meet Melissa.

I approached her when she was setting up her computer. Melissa is currently a teacher out catching up on some of her work. I asked her if I could take a few photos of her for my 100 Strangers project. She agreed.

"If you need me to pose, let me know." She said.

I told her to continue working on her laptop. Since the sun was backlit behind her and didn't have my flash with me, I struggled to light up her face. Fortunately for me, I had Lightroom and easily masked in a brighter exposure on her face. I intended to chat a little longer with her, but she was in the middle of catching up on work. I handed her my art card and headed on my way.

Thanks for the quick photo and chat Melissa. Hope you enjoy the photo!
