I’m taking $1 portraits as long as money permits. (See Thomas Hawk with his $2 portrait project and Justin Korn with his $1 portrait project.)

What’s the premise? I’ll offer $1 to anyone who asks me for money in exchange for their portrait. I’m a shy person, but I’ll do my best to find out a little about the person. You never know if it’ll make someone’s day for at least talking to them a little bit.

Fourteen months ago, Wayne flew to Los Angeles from Hawaii. He held a tall can in a brown paper bag, sipping beer – I can’t remember which brand.

I wished him well and continued on my photowalk.

Dog looking for a home

Looking for a home
View on Flickr

My coworker found this cool dog. In her email:

I found him on the street the day before Christmas and I would keep him because he is so sweet and friendly with people, but I have 8 cats.

He’s a fairly large yellow neutered male. Apparently, he is part Chow, part Akita, maybe part Shepherd and part other things. He is great with children and adults. He is healthy, housebroken, and has all his shots. He doesn’t seem to like other dogs or cats, however, so he should probably be an only pet.

If you’re interested and close to Laurel Canyon (Los Angeles), send an email with your contact information and I’ll forward that to my coworker.

I took out several people at poker night [a few weeks ago]. Taylor was the only one left.

Before we continued, I asked him if he’d hold still for a couple seconds.

I ended up taking his 10 chips (shown above). Then, he bought back in for another 50 chips[1. Each chip is worth $0.10. C’mon, we’re struggling students.] hoping for a comeback.

He failed. 🙂

Katie Alidadi

Katie (312/366)

Katie is a Public Counsel staff attorney for the Early Care & Education Law project. Like me, she takes advantage of the Metro Rail system. (It helps that work covers the cost.)

While talking and walking with her to the subway station, I offered to take portraits of her with her newborn boy that’ll be due in a month or so. I’m excited for her and her husband.

Before we boarded, I asked if I could take a portrait of her for my photo of the day – I’m glad she obliged. 🙂
