#7 - In a Food Truck

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 #7

Pictured: Frances Katsampes - AKA - Frankie, Operator/Mgr., Barista, coffee maker, truck driver, social media promoter, secretary, events booking and phonetographer!
Location: Java's Coffee Truck
Food Truck Mural Artists: Sarah Rutherford & Mr. Prvrt

Notice the city around you:
"I was walking around the Memorial Art Gallery grounds photographing the artist setting-up tents for this year's Clothesline Festival. I started thinking about coffee and soon after on the horizon I saw her. Not Frankie, but Java's Coffee Truck! I met Frankie while I was circling my pray and she was good enough to let me have some cold brew while they were still setting-up. Oh, and she let me take her portrait!" – S. Reardon.
