i decided to take on the 100 strangers project..
i am fascinated by people and what they do and howthey live their lives.....
so while i was in new jersey with kecia we both took pictures of strangers and doggie strangers( really though there isnt any dog that i would call a stranger)........
i have really enjoyed talking the pictures and talking to the strangers who are now friends!
they were all cool with having their pictures taken except for 3 little old ladies sitiing at the bar at pete and eldas ~a fabulous pizza joint..this is phillip a darling irishman selling his wares at one of the flea markets.
he is one hell of a story teller that was for sure!
it was so hot and humid, sheesh just thinking about it makes me hot...
this tough guy's name is nick
i was admiring his tattoo sleev e and asked if i could take a picture of his arm
as the tattoo was kinda creepy and he said hey look at this one if you want creepy
and damn if he wasnt right
the "it" clown from stephen kings book scared the crap out of me.. when i was
reading that book when it first came out it would sit on my nightstand
and i was afraid to touch it to read it...

now here is pat (another irishman),lol cooking up the ever famous pork roll ..i had never heard of this stuff but man oh man it is HEAVEN!! on a a soft bun with cheese..Yummy! and i had my fair share that weekend at least 3times and one that was packed in my lunch for the trip home....

i hope we can find it here in ohio...

hope you enjoy my first 3 of 100 strangers!

Interesting project and great photos. Creepy is right. I'm of an age where tats were for old men who served in the Navy and got drunk in foreign ports -grin-. I just don't get the "art" aspect but it's a great conversation starter and I love to look. -grin-
