gifty 21/100


gifty 21/100, originally uploaded by Slightly Esoterik.

I guarantee I have mangled this lovely woman's name [I did, it's Gifty, not Gifta... have now corrected it!]. I really need to start bringing a note pad with me to jot information down on (Gifty, please drop me an e-mail and I'll gladly correct any error!). I spotted her patiently waiting for her bus on Old Street in Shoreditch. She was on her way to church... and there I stood with a beer in my hand (well, it was a Friday evening afterall). She had on a beautiful outfit and had a phenomenal presence about her, all of which made me notice her from quite a distance away. I chatted with her and asked if she'd pose for me. She was friendly and patient, a perfect stranger encounter really. I am happy with how this shot turned out, it's exactly how she looked when she first caught my eye.

Thanks very much Gifty... I hope you enjoyed your church service.

I crossed paths with Lucas while on a wander through my London neighborhood. He and another guy stopped and handed me promo cards for a local club. They were friendly gents and I've been needing to get my 100 Strangers Project going again, so I asked if Lucas would pose for me. He gladly stepped up for the photo. As he had a job to get on with, I didn't engage in my usual chat session but let him get on with his promotion gig. I"m sure I'll probably see him around the 'ditch again soon.

Cheers Lucas, thanks for being part of my project.

This guy was a one man show high in the hills of Park G├╝ell in Barcelona. He was rocking out on his guitar like a mad man... sadly for his prospective recording career, his fashion sense and enthusiasm far out-weighed his talent.

Caught this fella napping near Bricklane, too many pints perhaps? Narcoleptic? Such a grungy setting for doze.
