Fifty-two on Friday : [21] Photograph a Stranger

“People are so wonderful that a photographer has only
to wait for that breathless moment to capture what he wants on film”

~ Weegee Dean Wean

I have new respect for street photographers and have now made it a goal to improve on this subject this summer. I’m thinking this gentleman is a painter, no? But then, he could be an actor? I have no idea? The mystery is what makes it all interesting, I think.

I am in Hawaii right now and will return this weekend. Please start our circle with the lovely Melanie Pitcher | Memphis, TN Photographer. School’s almost out, bring on SUMMER!!

I totally agree, the mystery is what makes this kind of photography so interesting! My mind creates little stories and histories for the people! Beautiful image!

at first glance he looked like he just performed a wedding, what a fun take on this week’s theme

Just the perfect stranger! And I think he is definitely a painter and loves what he does. Hope you are having a blast in Hawaii!

Definitely looks painterly. Very cool costume! I agree. I would love to do more street photography. It takes a certain amount of courage that I have yet to find. :) Have a great trip!

Hmmmm, a painter, who is rather cold. Look at the cuffs on that tunic…looks like leather? Very interesting stranger. I love this, Gina!
