Sophie joined my stranger #41 Kilian whilst I was still trying to catch up with him (long story already described under Kilian’s shot) but I thought she would make a great addition to my project and I had little hesitation asking her as well.

When I caught up with them I asked Kilian first and Sophie took a step backwards and laughed saying he should go for it – to which I replied "you can laugh – I was going to ask you as well" ;). Sophie agreed but insisted she kept her glasses on because she had no make-up on – I’m not very comfortable coercing my "strangers" but I think I need to try harder … I bet Sophie doesn’t need any make-up. Sorry everyone!

I took a few shots of Kilian and Sophie then asked if I could also take a full length portrait but unfortunately the focus on those two shots was very poor so sadly I have decided not to post them which is a real shame because my project is distinctly lacking these and Sophie would have been perfect.

I don’t know anything about Sophie but she laughed and smiled throughout and Kilian and Sophie seemed to be a really nice couple to me. Thanks very much for taking part – I hope that I didn’t take up too much of your lunch break.
