photographing strangers



it used to be easier to photograph strangers. It was great practice going to the fair and asking total strangers if I could take their photo. I got Shirley's ( seen above with family at the Texas State Fair last week) address so I can send her a print or 2. This follow up is so important to me. When I was 12, I was stopped by a photographer who asked me and a friend to pose for a street photo. She said she would send us prints. A few months later a black and white fiber postcard print showed up in the mail. It was huge in my life.
