Day 336 - What's Your Story?



Every time I see a homeless person like this man I wonder what is his story? There's many scenarios that go through my mind. I'm a very curious person (or as my husband says, I'm just nosey). I wouldn't say nosey per se'. I'm just so intrigued to hear people's stories. To hear about their past and what brought them to where they are today. It gives me a whole new outlook and appreciation for people when I hear where they have been. They are more than just a face to me. They become an emotion. I didn't actually talk to this man, but from looking at this picture you would think he was not very happy with me taking his picture. In reality, after he realized I was taking a picture of him, he smiled and told me to have a blessed day.

Typing the title to this gave me an idea. We have all gotten to know each other through the blogging world, but we don't really know each other. What's your story? We all have one. Since I am not doing another 365 project next year, I am looking for other ways to re-direct my blog while still keeping photography as the main focus. I'm curious to know how many of you would be interested in telling your story. Beginning January, I think I may start a weekly or monthly feature telling the story of one of our blogging friends. If you are at all interested send me an e-mail (capturedbymistydawn at yahoo dot com) and I will start lining up features. Depending on the interest will depend on whether I make it a weekly or monthly feature. I will start it out and then start scheduling people after me.

That sounds like such an awesome idea! And I really can't wait to read them. I agree with you, I often wonder about people's story too.

He looks interesting and if he wished you a blessed day why didn't you go to talk to him and ask what's up:)

One of my nicknames is "whiskers" as my son likes to refer when I think I'm being curious, but of course I must get to the bottom of whatever peaked my curiosity. Curious like a cat, aka whiskers.

oh, and yes, this is a brilliant idea.

Sad but everyone has his/her story ! I am telling about myself little by little through my daily thoughts on photography !
