#11- In a Park

For those new to this monthly installment, Conversation with A Stranger  is a regular series from local photographer Stephen S. Reardon. This quick post captures a local stranger and only gives a tiny bit of background – but not much else. We’ll let the photo speak for itself. Have you met any strangers lately?

Conversation With A Stranger #11

Pictured: Peter Debes
Occupation: Rochester Regional Group Chair for Sierra Club
Location: Cobbs Hill

Notice the city around you: I was just putting my dog back in the car at Cobbs Hill when I saw a group of explorers come off a trail. It was the bright jacket and hat that got me back out into the cold and wind to approach Peter and convince him to have his portrait taken. It took a lot of convincing with the help of one of his fellow explorers, but I got it. Peter provides nature tours with his group ‘Friend of Washington Grovewhich can be found on Facebook.” – S. Reardon
