100 Strangers Aero!

Again, when choosing strangers to approach…I usually approach strangers with “something about them” that is magnetic…whether it be their personality, appearance, pose, or even their outfit’s colors in relation to their surroundings.  I photographed Caleb aka Aero because of his glasses.

Little did I know, that this guy is pretty famous.  Immediately after posting this photo to my social media outlets, I learn that he has alot of history in san diego, hawaii, and the graffiti world.  He is the owner of “Blubber” the company that produces the can of paint he is holding.  His brother was a famous surfer.  Many of friends sent me links to news articles about him…and even his little sister started following me on instagram.

I guess when it comes to strangers, most of them will just be friends you have yet to meet.
