On the way over, I noticed this very brightly painted store on the corner of Dowling and Leeland. After delivering the print to Michael, well I left it with the girl at the counter since Michael was not in, I drove back by the brightly painted store. It was really a combination of two stores, a liquor store and a very small convenience store. I decided to go in an purchase something cold to drink but the door to the convenience store was locked. Thinking that maybe the two were connected I went into the liquor store. Turns out the clerk from the convenience store was there so she opened up for me.
Long story short, while in the liquor store I got permission to photograph the building. After I purchased a couple of bottles of Gatorade I asked the clerk in the convenience store if she would sit for a portrait. She said yes. I went back to the liquor store and asked the clerk there to sit for a portrait and she also said yes so I added two photographs to my 100 Strangers project. I will have 8x10’s made and take them back to the clerks in the next few days.

So far, no one that I have sought permission from and no one that I have asked to sit for a portrait has refused.
