So far, I've tried to keep this project to overcast days. The softer light means that the portraits are reasonably well lit regardless of where I meet the stranger. This morning however, the overcast day brought rain with it. I didn't see it as an issue until I started. Making eye contact with a stranger is the first step, but umbrellas made this suprisingly difficult! People are generally more hurried when it is raining too.

I met Declan in the Milk Market as he was browsing the stalls there. The Milk Market has a new roof which is great on rainy days! He was initially a little hesitant at having his portrait taken, which is a natural reaction. I know that if a random stranger approached me and asked to take my photo I would also be a bit taken aback. Thankfully he agreed and became Stranger #6.
