The perfect stranger
On July 4 I gave myself a simple assignment: photograph 50 random strangers. The idea was to document what an ordinary American looks like. But then it got really hot — and I got really lazy — so I didn’t shoot a single frame.
It took me a couple of minutes to notice that his left pinky was bandaged. “Got bit by a radial saw,” he said. “Can’t wait til it heals so I can play properly with all my fingers again.” I was stunned to realize he’d been fiddling so brilliantly with a one-digit deficit.
After a few minutes of chatting, he graciously sat for a couple of shots. We traded emails and promised to stay in touch.
Meet Micah, my first frame. Talk about a perfect stranger …
I wonder who frame #2 will be?
