Photographs of Strangers

Jeff Bell of Planet Bell blog recently blogged about taking photos of strangers, as well as “street photographs”. I find it sometimes uncomfortable taking photos of people. This is why most of my photos are of animals and nature. But I did manage to take some in my travels and I have no doubt I will take some more on my medical mission trip at the beginning of the year.

Here are some of the ones that I have taken. hope you enjoy. From Africa 2013, Peru 2014, Japan 2015.

    I’m glad to see that you posted these! I really like the six women sitting on the ledge together. The lady resting her hand on her fist has a nice expression of boredom or thought. I also like the silhouetted guys in Cusco. That one is cool.

    Where are you going on your medical mission?
