Your grays are glorious. I love how the floor is stained. Story there. Also, congratulations on the discipline of posting every day.

I just discovered this blog by chance. It is a nice idea. More men than women. Are they more strange?

Roark Johnson said...

Briconella, I have to remedy that, would like to get an equal balance of men and women. The word "stranger" is a funny word it means many different things....for me it's people I don't know, and after I meet them, there's usually absolutely nothing strange about them.

I tried responding earlier and Blogger was a little sick er sumthin. So if it went thorough and I missed sorry for the extra applause.

I think your work is fantastic. Love the concept and have to admit I thought about doing it myself last year. Being from chicago and not nearly the snapper you are I will just be happy to view your fine images and the faces of Chicago through your blog.

Damn fine work.

Hi Roark, your blog was indicated to me by a fellow photoblogger AFTER I set the topic four our fourtnightly shootout: "portrait of a stranger". Also, a few weeks before I set out the explore MF photography. What a coincidence! Please be our guest and check out the photos taken in the shootout (link in the last post in my blog, shouldbewithouttext.blogspot.com).
Great work, great discipline and courage! I can appreciate your determination and (probably) manner. It takes a kind man to take all these photos of strangers...
Best,
Zsombor
