Day 7

One of our local baristas. Sorry I forgot to tip you! I will next time!

So far, until today, I had only photographed people I know for this project. It's kind of hard to ask strangers if you can photograph them. I have in the past but it's been awhile so I need to get over my inhibitions. What's the worse that can happen? I like the idea of having a specific place in mind and whomever I encounter first in said place will be my subject. That's pretty much what I did today after I chickened out at my first location - the library. The librarians or volunteers at that particular library aren't the friendliest. Anyway, I work better with restrictions, assignments, deadlines, etc. So, if any of you have an assignment you want to send me on drop me a line!
