The search is ON!

Tuesday, January 6, 2009

While I was blog-hopping the other day, I came across a post from Iris' blog with the title Stranger #3 blah blah blah. Being the curious cat that I was, I read the whole post. Turns out it's an entry for a group in Flickr, 100 strangers.

It's actually a group for people who want to hone their skills in taking portraits of people, and in the course of doing so, improve their social skills. The task is to take portraits of strangers (yes, strangers only, you can't take photos of people you know) and post them in the groups with a brief story to accompany it. (For the full mechanics, visit the group in Flickr.)

My interest was immediately captured by this idea/project because it was not your usual photomeme (or whatever these things were called, I'm still new to this community) because it involved interacting with other people, and strangers at that. :)

Anyway, I was afraid to try this on my own so I introduced the concept to Missy. She readily agreed to try it too. :) Now we're project buddies. Hehe. We hope we can keep this up. *Let's go Missy!*

There you go. Now all I have to do is make up a spiel (well, Missy is starting on it) for the strangers I'll approach. I hope I don't get kidnapped or holdapped in the process. Hehe. The search is on for my first stranger! :D
