Within a few minutes of setting out to observe the world around me, I came across Rex (048) as he was people-watching, and I stopped to chat for a few minutes. It was not long before a brightly coloured jacket across the street caught my attention, and I excused myself from Rex to go introduce myself to a new Stranger.
This is Olga. She told me that her significant other and some friends are also photographers, which I think may have made her more sympathetic to my cause. The lighting was difficult where she stood, and as I tried to juggle both camera and reflector, Olga — obviously familiar with the equipment — made some astute comments. Our conversation was brief as she was in a hurry, but I’m very thankful she took the time to stop and pose for me.
