So, this week our theme was strangers. It was easy to procrastinate because it can be somewhat daunting to go up to a total stranger and ask if you can photograph them. And then today, I had the idea to go to my favorite coffee shop aka Starbucks and photograph either a couple or two women conversing over coffee. So, I pull into the parking lot and notice there are very few cars in the lot. I grab my camera bag and head inside to find one older gentlemen with headphones on working very diligently (not really the look I was hoping for) and a college student on the telephone. I couldn’t believe it.  I never walk into Starbucks in the middle of the afternoon without it being totally crowded. So, I decided to go with it and photographed the baristas in action!

We had fun! Now, please click through to the fabulous Chrissy, the Dayton Centerville Cincinnati OH Family & Child Photographer and see her take on this strangers theme.

    These are so great! And doesn’t it just figure, the day you want the coffee shop to be crowded it’s not! That’s the way it goes, but you did an amazing job with what you had! I love the way you captured them doing their thing 🙂
