I sat on a bench, camera in lap, doing nothing. Out of the blue, Eric was asking me about the camera. He has cameras by Olympus, Leica, and Nikon – a gear junkie. I gave him a quick tour of the camera, and my photostream on the phone. It is amazing how often the Olympus OM-D E-M5 (who got paid to name that?) has drawn comments leading to a stranger encounter.
When I explained 100 Strangers to Eric, he was interested and 'all in.' Eric is a professional photographer who spent 24 years in Europe, primarily doing fashion photography. In Sarasota, he is mainly into real estate and associated photography. Eric showed me an image on his phone, a high contrast B&W – my kind of stuff! His site is HERE.
We exchanged cards and I sent him this image. He liked it and we are hopeful to meet for lunch soon.
