… since my last stranger !!!

I don’t know why I’m struggling so much – I think it is because I still haven’t really decided what I want to get out of my second round.

First time round it was always about the encounter and getting to know the person but I resolved up front this time that I wanted to focus more on the photo and put in the effort to take a really good portrait. But I have found a real reluctance as I walk past “yet another pretty girl” wondering what we would talk about or a multitude of other prejudices.

Chris was outwardly exactly the sort of person that I would have approached without hesitation in my first round but now I’m hesitating for no reason at all.

I might simply revert to type for a bit until I settle into the project again then worry about pushing the boundaries technically.

The fact of the matter is I enjoyed today’s encounter and that’s 99% the point of the project isn’t it?
