15. Post everyday for a month (24/30)

I realised I haven’t actually done an official blog about my involvement in the 100 strangers project. I don’t know why, I think it’s because it’s not actually part of my 101 goals ! But I’ve really wanted to push myself to do something like this. I enjoy taking photos, I’m not at all a professional — I don’t even own an SLR ! I think it’s my continuous search in trying to discover what I can or cannot do.

Anyway, I’ve really own just begun. I took photos of four strangers and soon after I broke my camera :-S  — which is my excuse the little progress I’ve had ! Now that I’ve got it repaired I’m planning on doing more over the holidays !

What it is is an exercise in street photography or photo journalism (according to the website — google magic it my friends). Approaching random people and taking shots of them is a lot more difficult than it sounds and I’ve always enjoyed a challenge. I’ll do anything once, except drugs (along with a list of other activities I find pointless).  You can find my photos on my flickr.

Here’s one of my favourites ! Presenting.. Rodney !


I think what amuses me most about this project is actually MEETING these people. This particular guy kept asking me “what’s the catch?” Hahah. After a lot of convincing he allowed me to take a couple of shots of him. Read more about it here.

    I think this photo is wonderful. It has so much character.
