Are You Wearing GREEN???

Happy St. Pat's Day!!!! Kay Lynn and I were at our photography workshop in Santa Fe over St. Pat's Day a few years ago. (At least I think so since this guy was dressed up like this.) Every day we had an assignment. This day the assignment was something like "shoot strangers at 20 feet". Each of us had to wander the streets of Santa Fe, engage strangers in conversation with the goal of making them comfortable enough so they would agree to have their picture taken by a stranger at close range. I had no idea how intimidating this would be until I had to do it. No cheating and sneaking a candid without the person knowing. This man was on his way to work, and I complimented him on his handsome tie. (I'll talk a bit more about this portrait tomorrow on Tech Talk Tuesday.)
