One photo a day in October 2011–Day 9

Day nine of my challenge coincided with the baptism of my 7 year old niece Izzy.  Even though I am not believer in the big man upstairs I wanted to go to support Izzy.  I also hoped that I might find a suitable stranger amongst the congregation.  And thankfully there was the perfect subject, a lovely, sweet old lady. 

She was honoured to be asked but as with a lot of my subjects she didn’t know why I had chosen her and was worried that she would “break that expensive camera”.  As I’m sure you’ll agree she is extremely photogenic and hopefully I’ve captured her in the right way.

She was the only stranger I asked to photograph today and only the second of the weekend.  Last weekend I photographed a total of 26 strangers but since then I have generally only taken photos of one stranger per day.  Some people thought I would end up with over 100 strangers for the month but I think it will probably be more like the 66 I took last time.

Anyway, I am looking forward to seeing who I meet and photograph in the remaining 22 days.
