Although Rebecca allowed a photograph, she remained a bit skeptical about my strangers portrait project.

I like this one Bob. How do you go about approaching these strangers to be photographed.

Nice shot.

I've wanted to try this sort of thing for a while, but alas, I have neither the time nor the people skills to do it.

I like this one too.

In the nit picking dept., I wonder if the close crop on the top and on the bottom works. I think one or the other cropped close works more often than both.

I can just hear her thoughts, Bob (well, not really, just my speculation based on her expression):

"yeah, right, Bob. And I've got a bridge goin' for cheap"

Superb capture, as usual

Dein- winner after winner after....
Yep, I like this. Nicely done.
Her skepticism shows ever so slightly.
She looks to me like a pretty girl- but not beautiful- and probably unaccustomed to a lot of attention regarding her looks (going on the theory that all close-up photography has some basis on a person's looks).
I agree with Douglas on his suggestion about carrying a mini-portfolio to ease the concerns of people. It would certainly legitimize your proposal.

Andre, thank you.

ct8282 and Statitica, I'll try to cover this in a couple of blog posts next week. http://www.deinfaces.com/

Jim, I agree. Usually I crop more from the top, putting the eyes near the "magic" 1.3 line. I just couldn't crop out all of her tall hair .

Thank you, Anthony.

Douglas and Charlie, As always, thank you for looking and commenting. I carry an Android phone with my flickr Photostream on, for just that purpose.

Douglas, thanks for the advice. Now I have good reason to get an iPad3 (or just photostream to my iPhone4)

I think this is a very good idea. I always offer to send, via email, an image or two if they are interested. Sometimes even prints are sent, but I've never done a project of Bob's size.

I might be able to approach a man or a normally attractive woman to ask for her picture, but this woman is way too attractive for me to ask.

Actually, her significant other was with her - I photographed him too.

She has an inviting face, but I do see that hint of skepticism.
Nice job as always. Looking forward to your blog post(s) about your method of approach.

Thanks angel and no. I will try my first (brief) podcast about approach on Tuesday.
