I had quite a few knock backs this week; more than usual.
My schtick is to approach people and explain to them who I am and what the Portrait 365 project is and then I ask if they’ll be my portrait of the day.
Mostly people run a hand through their hair, or smile a little nervously and say sure, but if they hesitate for more than a few seconds I give them an out and say it’s totally their choice. I know once these words are out I’ll lose them but I don’t want anyone to do it if they’re not comfy with it.
Funnily enough, the anglos are usually fairly keen and I find that other cultures are more hesitant. Are anglos bolder, less reserved?
It’s an interesting question.
Anyway, I’ll keen photo stalking anyone interesting and see what other questions pop up.
“I wrote and performed my own cabaret show at the Perth Fringe Festival. I’m a performer, I’ve always been a performer. I was on a reality show called “I Will Survive” and I was the third runner up. That sounds so much better than 4th place.”
“I parked in the disabled spot because there was no other spaces. I feel like I should go and move my car but I am 9 months pregnant with two other children and I feel pretty disabled.”
Look at that attitude!!!
“I would usually say I’m so proud of my children, possibly my greatest creation, but today I doubt that.”
We had a bit of a hectic play date.
