And while I might be able to converse with a total stranger, to ask him or her to pose for my camera, I still have to take a deep breath and push myself to approach the first one.
But I have completed my project, almost one week ahead of schedule. The 100-day deadline is next Tuesday, June 29.
I approached more than 120 people and I actually photographed 102. Two of my photos didn't turn out. I took photos of people in the Glebe, the Byward Market, Westboro, Sparks Street, and Parliament Hill. When I visited New York City, I even captured images strangers on the High Line.

I captured strangers. I shot 100 people I didn't know. Kind of makes me sound like a psychopath, a serial killer.

To see my photos, go to my Flickr album. My family is asking me to make a short video, similar to the one I made when I finished my Bate Island Project. Perhaps I will. Perhaps, I'll have something ready for Music Monday. Stay tuned.
My 100 Strangers project is over. Thanks to all of you who offered support and encouragement over the past few months, and a special thanks to all of those wonderful strangers who agreed to participate. Without you, this project would have been impossible.
All I can ask myself now is, what's next?
