Finally, I use my 105mm lens …

Doug is a support worker for people with Cerebral Palsy – a job that is both rewarding and hard work. Originally from Aberdeen, university brought him to Newcastle and friends have kept him here since.

Doug was not working today and just out doing some boring mundane stuff.

I tried my “craziest thing” question again but it is apparent that this is not an easy question to answer when asked on the spot so I think I’ll give up on it except when talking to a ‘crazy’ person ;).

I walked with Doug for a very short distance as he was going my way but when things stalled on my soundbite question I decided I had taken up enough of his time and thanked him and left him to enjoy his day in peace.

Doug, thank you very much for taking part in my project, I hope you enjoyed your day off.

This picture is #35 in my 100 strangers project. Find out more about the project and see pictures taken by other photographers at the 100 Strangers Flickr Group page
