100 Strangers Project-#12: James



I haven't posted a portrait for my 100 Strangers Project since last March when I still was in Mazatlán, México! After chatting with this young man, I asked if I could photograph him, and, of course, he consented. James is originally from Azusa, California, and he is here in Minnesota to attend Metropolitan State College, majoring in math education. While attending school he works as a cashier at the newly opened Trader Joe's discount gourmet store located on Randolph and Lexington Avenues, the third one opened in the Twin Cities. It is wildly popular, and I must agree that it's a fun place to shop, not only because of the items and prices, but also because of their friendly young clientele, such as James.

  2. Interesting portrait for your 100 strangers project. I guess you know that it is people that make businesses. I told our bank president in Rotary that the only reason I come to his bank to cash checks or to deposit money are the people he has working there. Every bank has people but some banks don't have the right people. Same with some stores.
