I was walking along Orchard when I saw her walking towards my direction. She was wearing a simple one-piece dress, and was quite tall almost towering over most of the people around her. I wasn’t decided yet if I wanted to shoot her, but as I got closer, I knew I had to – she had this subtle angelic charm. My heart started to pound… it always does whenever I’m about to approach a stranger for their portrait. I stopped her and asked if I could take her picture. She smiled and said “Oh, street style.” I chuckled a “yeah…”, relieved that she understood what I was doing. She said yes. After I took a few shots, I thanked her and she went on her way. I noticed my hands were slightly shivering. It’s funny because she’s my 100th stranger and I still get the shivers. Maybe it was because it’s been almost 3 weeks since I last approached a stranger. Or maybe it was because I knew I had a keeper shot.


This is my 100th stranger. I started this project thinking I’ll stop at 100… but I figured I really loved doing this so I might as well go on to shoot more… but not regularly, though. Just when I have some free time, or I happen to have my camera in my hands and see a stranger with a great face. In the meantime, I’m still brewing up a new project to work on.

I also still have some faces queued up, so please still watch out for those. Thank you guys for following this project and for all the comments and support!
