Week 6 family time.

Spring has sprung here, and there is no better time for families to be out and enjoy the weather.  I was back at the Rock Garden at William Land Park here in Sacramento taking advantage of all of the flowers in bloom.  I wasn’t the only one taking advantage of the day, Continue reading

Week 5… the late bloomer.

Unlike this Spring, if you can call it Spring because it’s been hot, this post is a late bloomer.  I actually prefer fashionably late, it sounds intentional and has more flare.  My stranger for this week is actually very close to my photography, but in a distant manner. Continue reading

Week 4, just in the “Nik” of time.

So there I was sitting in the house and wondering if I was going to find some one in time for this week.  I had my worst ever bout with allergies this past week, to the point that I took a couple of days off of work and visited the doctor.  Needless to say walking around to find a stranger was not high or even possible this week for the most part.  Anyways back to sitting in the house.  There I was sitting at the table waiting to take my son to his indoor soccer game and a man appeared outside riding his long board skateboard with what turned out to be his young nephew.  I grabbed my camera and said to my self this is your guy.  I walked out my door Continue reading

Week 3, fashionably late.

Well at least this photo was taken in week #3.  Just outside of work on my lunch hour I spotted the low rider bicycle across the street, but seriously how could you not notice it!  As I walked across the street he was on the phone and I asked him if I could take his photo he nodded in the affirmative.  I readied my camera looked up Continue reading

Week 2….. finally!

Well after a week of nothing but negative replies, and growing doubt in the ability of this project to succeed the first person I ask this week says sure.  As I headed out on my lunch today in search of a stranger I began to think that this project just might crash and end prematurely.  I decided right there that I would not let it end, that I would ask every person that I crossed paths with.  So I was off.  I headed north and figured I would have a good chance.  I was two blocks in and no one, then three, four, five, six and still nobody.

Week 1.5 The week that wasn’t.

There was no one there.

There was no one there.

Well a week has gone by and no takers. I approached quite a few people and struck up a casual conversation.  When I brought up my camera and explained my project to them and asked if I could take their photo all I heard was no, no thanks, I’d rather not, or my favorite I don’t think so.  I guess after my quick easy start on week one, the results of week two were inevitable.  Although I am disappointed, I will carry on with the project.

So the week wasn’t a total bust, I did expand my photography in a different direction, namely placing some of my photographs up for purchase on the inter-webs.  I have been thinking about this for quite some time now, but I finally found a service that fit my needs.   Continue reading

Week 1

I have been mulling over a new photo project for quite some time, looking to really challenge my self and expand my photography.  Normally I take photographs of just about any thing but people, so I decided that should be my project.  And not just any one qualified, this person has to be a complete stranger, not even a friend of a friend of a friend, just a random person or couple or group whatever the situation is.
