Flickr 100 Strangers – 3/100 Henry

photo of Stranger 3/100 - Henry

Henry is a member of the 51 Division Community Police Liason Committee. I met him at the police station open house event, where he was happy to explain the role and challenges of the CPLC (in particular, 51 Division is part of a fairly rough area of downtown Toronto with its fair share of poverty and drug crime – although the recent condo developments there have revitalized the neighbourhood).

He was very surprised and pleased that I wanted to take his portrait, and happily posed for a few shots. I do wish I had taken a little more care in getting the exposure right, possibly used the spot meter – the backlighting was very strong.

This picture is #3 in my 100 strangers project. Find out more about the project and see pictures taken by other photographers at the 100 Strangers Flickr Group page.
