The gear was packed and secured. Pulled in to my usual parking spot and immediately glanced in the open yard to find two young women relaxing on a blanket. Seemed like for the past week and a half, I've been constantly coming down to a ghost town. Either my luck was wearing thin or bigger epidemic had struck.
I gathered up enough courage to walk over to them and introduce myself. Yet, it's always a struggle to know what to say without making yourself look like a complete ass. Ah yes, I then recalled what Brandon Stanton (HONY) mentioned when he approaches strangers in one of his lectures. "CONFIDENCE".
I made my approach and politely asked the two if they wanted to take part in a quick photo project. And that was it. Mission accomplished.
This is Christina and she's a bartender at Buzzbin Art & Music Shop. She met up with a her friend to enjoy the warm Spring afternoon (FINALLY). We briefly chatted about the Canton area and bad rep the city has received in the past year. Regardless, Christina loves Canton.
"You just got to know where the troubled spots are". She said as she pointed over to a specific direction of the city.
Much thanks Christina for the participation! You just reserved yourself number 68 in my project. Feel free to drop a line and see how I did.
