Photo with 9 notes
Alec, the photographer
My wife is a wonderful woman, and she supports me in my photography, so much so that she has come to accept the fact that I may drop out of a conversation with a quick “Be right back!” as I chase down some potential subject for a street portrait. She wasn’t surprised, then, when I disappeared during a conversation with a group of friends to approach Alec and ask for a photo. As I was explaining my project to her, Alec asked if I was the guy who has the Cville People Project blog, which caught me off guard — I started this Tumblr blog quite recently, so not many people have heard of it. As it happens, she had seen it and had even posted a comment on it about a photo that I had posted there the other day. Alec is a photographer herself, and she was a great subject. We talked about photography, my project, and her plans to go to school for journalism. And she just moved to town a few days ago, making her another newcomer.
