It’s been ages since I last took any stranger photos – my previous was Patrick back in August. I’ve been thinking I needed to get back into the swing of things, so when I was out with friends today shooting some street photography, I vowed to progress the project again. The event we were at was celebrating the switching on of the Christmas Lights in Chelmsford town centre. There were various attractions and groups performing all afternoon. Lucia was with a team of Ceroc dancers who were strutting their stuff in the High Street. She came and sat on a bench next to me to catch her breath after a particularly vigorous dance. We got chatting. She’s been going to ceroc classes for about 4 years and was very enthusiastic and passionate about it. She says it’s a great way to socialise and meet new friends. She is also a big fan of purple, so we had something in common! Her daughter is a budding photographer too; Lucia says she has a very good eye for a picture, so I pointed her towards Flickr to share her work. Thanks Lucia for being so friendly and for sitting for me this afternoon.
