100 Strangers - Photograph # 001

This is Lynn. She was out for a walk on Main Street in Lancaster, South Carolina just down the road from where I live. Lynn was born up in North Carolina, but has lived in Lancaster for a long time.

Lynn is my first subject for The 100 Strangers Project, a group I've joined to learn how to better interact with people by taking their portraits and listening to their stories. Hopefully, it will help me become a better photojournalist.

what a great project/ idea. it's always nice meeting someone new. though i can't say i know many strangers as i am pretty outgoing. still i think this could turn into something more after you've worked on this project awhile. good luck. you're off to a nice start with your first picture of Lynn. have a great day.
