You may all think I am crazy but it is true, does the internet lie?

If you recall, the last post I mentioned that I helped my ole mate Seng Mah from Venture Photography Workshops out on the Nikon Centennial Street Photography walk.  Part of that walk was a few challenges and one being the SSP.  That is right, the Street Stranger Portrait.  The idea of a SSP is to not just quickly snap a photo of a person and walk away but it is to meet them, talk to them, find out their story and take their portrait of a more composed nature, then show them the results.

Well, I met this lovely young lady, she was actually taking selfies in St Mary’s Cathedral. I introduced myself and explained what I was doing and then proceeded to get her story.  She is from Spain, here on holidays for a few more days before travelling over east for another couple of weeks and then home.

What I really saw was Wonder Woman, my gosh she was just as beautiful and was a spitting image of her but the dead give away was her top…clearly I had met the real Wonder Woman!
