This is Antonino, Stranger #11 in my mission to take portraits of 100 Beautiful Strangers!
It was a beautiful day out and it was the perfect opportunity to meet new strangers for the project.
Looking around, I spotted a very debonair gentlemen who was serving ice cream from a vendor’s cart. I really loved his attire, especially his hat.
There was a line, so I waited for the right opportunity to approach him about the project. When I finally did, I was thrilled when he said that he would pose for the camera.
Unfortunately, just at that moment, my lens begin to malfunction and I couldn’t get it to work properly. I told him about the issue and thanked him for his time. You can imagine how disappointed I was.
I begin to try to troubleshoot the issue and after a long while, I finally got the lens to work.
I approached Antonino again and he was gracious enough to give it another try. This time the lens worked like a charm.
Thank you for being apart of the project Antonino! It was a pleasure to meet you.
