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!


fantastique…he looks french to me ;)


Beautiful photo!


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!


Totally stunning Gina! I think painter. Hope you are having a fab time!

Love this eye contact Gina! I say Renaissance Man! :)


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!


Hope you are enjoying your trip!! I am a bit jealous :P
