100 Beautiful Strangers Project: Stranger #36

Stranger #36 Stephan by TGWC

Mr. Click and I have made the big transition moving from Germany to the US. There has been so much to do to get settled in and to establish our new “home sweet home”. Things are finally slowing down and I’m excited to start posting again!

Right before moving to the US, I was able to meet a few more Strangers for the project and I’m looking forward to introducing them to you in upcoming posts.

Meet Stephan who is a Barista at Starbucks! Stephan stood out because I absolutely loved his samurai top knot. He also had a friendly demeanor when he interacted with customers and I knew that he would be a great candidate for the project. I was lucky enough to catch him while he was on break and he was very interested in the 100 Beautiful Strangers concept.

While adjusting my camera settings, I learned that Stephan is a fashion design student. He’s currently completing his apprenticeship and enjoys designing clothes with an urban flair.

Thank you for being Stranger #26 Stephan and best wishes as you complete your apprenticeship!

100 Beautiful Strangers: Stranger #2

Stranger #2 Shamal by TGWCMeet Shamal!

I was hanging out in Starbucks when I spotted Stranger #2. While briefly looking out the window, I saw a mass of beautiful brown curls. On the inside I was shouting…you have to approach this person for the project, but of course I hesitated. My thoughts were, “What do I say”…”Will this person think I’m nuts”…etc.

In the end, I decided to just go for it. After all, this was what the project was all about, right?

I’m so glad that I did!  Not only was Shamal super sweet and laid back, but he was also easy to capture.

Thank you for being Stranger #2 Shamal!
