26:100 Strangers - Chris
This picture is 26 in my "100 Strangers" project. It was taken at the conclusion of the local 'People's Climate Picnic' and march.

As is often the way at large gatherings I met some people I knew and they introduced me to others. Eventually I found myself chatting to Chris about the local environment and the relevance of proper consideration of climate change and, most particularly, of sea level rise in regional planning. Chris proved to have quite a fascinating knowledge of the issues, as he was a former Councillor in the local Shire Council and was involved when they initiated policies to minimise future risks.

Chris readily agreed to participate in the '100 Strangers' project, removed his sunglasses, and this was the result. Thanks so much for your cooperation, Chris.

Explored.

Yes, I began this project in a group at the other site, Bev. It's something of a challenge to bowl up to a stranger and say something like 'can I grab your photo and put it on the internet'? Strangely though, most people are receptive if that general statement is explained well and it does lead to meeting some interesting people (as here). Thanks very much.

Thanks very much for your kind comments and faves, everyone. The challenge in taking this shot was getting light under the brim of that hat. I took it in the shade of a small tree, which gave general shade and also allowed plenty of diffuse light without shadows.
