Baleria (Stranger #24/100), Las Vegas Aria

Baleria agreed to have her portrait taken just across from the new, silver frontage of the Aria casino in Las Vegas. All in I saw just five people say yes to a portrait, versus some twelve rejections. Maybe it was the heat, or number of touts, or lack of locations, but Vegas was very hard to shoot strangers in.

That made Baleria’s stopping all the more appreciated. She was on her way to meet friends for a hen party; hence the fantastically presented hair. We chatted about her life in Stuttgart and holiday to family in Mexico; a great, energetic conversation that indicates she’s every bit as full of energy as the 4,000W smile suggests.

Baleria – thanks for stopping and taking part in the project. Have an amazing time in Chiapas and safe travel home.

This is portrait #24 of my 100 Strangers Project – check out the group page and get involved.
