Beautiful Smiles of Strangers – A Young Artist and a Pedicab Driver

Telling complete strangers that they have a beautiful smile and taking a quick snapshot of them always makes my day. Meet Mason, who is attending art school and Terry who was riding his pedicab through the busy streets of Downtown Minneapolis on a sunny saturday afternoon!

  1. Bonjour Val’ Je viens seulement de visiter New York avec toi!!! Merci de m’avoir montré une des nombreuses facettes de cette ville,loin des buildings: tu étais seule? moi je ne me serais pas aventurée dans certains quartiers “coupe gorge”. On en reparlera au tel. ou skype Bises Flo Date: Sun, 27 Apr 2014 14:13:07 +0000 To:


  2. I find it quite hard to engage with a stranger. But I will have to have a stab at it. Do you have to get them to sign a release form. I do admire your street images. They are always so interesting xx


  3. Next week I am doing a presentation on street photography to our local club. I just love the picture of the young artist and your wise advice about engaging with a stranger and taking a quick snapshot, and I’m going to use it in the presentation (with your permission, of course). So looking forward to Paris! Eric
