100 Beautiful Strangers Project: Stranger #40

Stranger #40 Lea by TGWC

Today I’m introducing the 40th stranger in my 100 Beautiful Strangers Project. Only 10 more strangers until I reach the halfway point which I’m so excited about!

I met Lea on my final walk-through at the medieval festival I’ve talked about in my last three Strangers post. What I love most about this festival is that you get a chance to purchase the goods from the time period. Lea is a merchant who sells hand made baskets which you see captured behind her.

Lea stood out for me because of her warm smile and beautiful piercings. I almost decided against asking her to be apart of the project because we were taking our leave from the event. I’m so glad that I changed my mind. One thing I’m learning in the project is not to miss the opportunity to approach a stranger who has captured your attention…it may not come around again. The invitation could very well end in “no”, but I’ve gotten far more yeses on this journey so far.

Lea was happy to join the project! As I was taking her photo, she told me that she has been a merchant at the festival for years and enjoys selling baskets for the themed event.

I’m so pleased that I could capture your beautiful smile and spirit in front of the camera. Thank you for being stranger #40 Lea!

100 Beautiful Strangers Project: Stranger #39

Stranger #39 Alex by TGWC

I met Alex as I continued my walk around the medieval festival. I loved his costume because it reminded me so much of Frodo’s from the Lord of the Rings.

Alex seemed to be a person that shies away from the spotlight and I think he was a little nervous in front of the camera.

However, after taking a few shots, I could see him slowly relax. In the end, I think he enjoyed the process and I’m so happy that he did.

Thank you for taking a chance on the project Alex and also for being Stranger #39!

100 Beautiful Strangers Project: Stranger #38

Stranger #38 Kalsten by TGWC

It’s been a while since I’ve posted photos for my project, so I’m happy to introduce you to the next stranger.

As I mentioned in my last 100 Strangers post, I attended a fun renaissance event and met a group of friends who wore medieval costumes that rivaled the characters from the Game of Thornes.

Kalsten was the next person to pose for the camera. I was impressed by the beautiful leathers and furs included in his costume. As you can see from the photo, he took great pride in displaying it!

Thank you for being apart of the project Kalsten, it was a pleasure to meet you!
