I found myself working out of my home town, in the City of Huntingdon. So armed with camera I went for a lunchtime walk about with the aim to add at least one stranger.
I was about to give up. I couldn't find anyone who appealed; or if they did they were in too much of a hurry to stop. Then I spotted Anthony sitting on a bench in the centre of town. I think the reason that I wanted him in my 100 Strangers was the long flowing hair and the rather patchy facial hair.
Anthony seemed happy enough to take part. He was in Huntingdon on a shopping trip, he and his friend had picked up a couple of games that they were going to play on that afternoon. The first two shots were standard profile shots but then Anthony did the hand gesture above, which I'm told has a variety of meanings, though I like to think it was to do with his love of Heavy Metal music!
