It was a few minutes before sunset and a cold wind was blowing sand across the beach. There was nobody else around and I was practicing my reflector techniques on Blanca. Then I saw two people on bikes approaching and hurried to meet them and ask if they’d participate in my project. After an initial bemused shoulder shrug, they both happily agreed.
Mark and Hope (stranger #3) are brother and sister and are from Pensacola Beach, Florida. Recently, they pulled up stakes and headed west on a cross-country road trip. Hope is interested in photography and has been showing Mark how to use her camera along their travels. It was not unlike my own trip out to Oregon and we had a nice conversation about it. They had found good jobs in California for a while but then decided to continue on. They both had such a great energy, were witty and funny and full of an adventurous spirit! I really enjoyed meeting them!
Best of luck to you both and please email me so I can send you these pictures.
