Stranger 23 - Earp

September 3, 2011
I was out in the square again, bathing in the heat, just enjoy the sites. And of course, looking for new strangers to photograph.

I glanced over across the street at the local cafe shop and noticed this guy with his daughter sipping coffee and some pastries. I didn't want to be rude and interrupt someone's lunch, wandered around until the timing was right. Waited too long and the guy and the little girl vanished.

Maybe about an hour later, I heard a melody I recognized from around the corner and found this guy strumming his guitar on the street.

Everyone, please meet Earp.

As we started to chat, I asked him if he had any musical inspirations. He said that Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, The Doors, and my favorite band, Metallica were some of his favorites to play.

Earp eventually would like to start up a band, but probably would like to do it somewhere other than Ohio. Told me Ohio sucks and would like to relocate somewhere with more artists.

When I asked him if I could photograph him for my project, he simply responded,

"Man, your like the third person who wants my photograph."

I chuckled, but he had no problem at all. Stood him in front of the cafe window and fired off about 10 frames.

Thanks Earp for being part of the project. Good luck with the music career and hope it brings you success.
