The brewery tour on Saturday was to start the new winter brew for Craftworks, and I got home to find a friend in Virginia had been on a brewery tour also. I promised to send her the Seorak Oatmeal Stout t-shirt, then thought I should take it out on the town first. It didn't suit me so I accosted random strangers and asked them to model or pose with it for me (except the dog, he's my roommate so not random).
Here are the results, and there's a story to each:
This guy was sitting in his pickup, obviously moving house and waiting for someone (his wife, he told me later) and when I asked if he was going to be there long, thought I was trying to move him on and got quite aggressive. After I explained that I just wondered if he had time to pose for a picture, he explained that someone had tried to carjack him the previous day. And he was so, so apologetic . . .
This little lady is the graphic artist that designed the shirt, hence the proud smile
She's also one of the lovely staff members at Craftworks, as are the next four models
Punk dude really didn't want to be part of this
The Kiwi prevailed
A charming Frenchman and his beautiful daughter - trying to explain what I was doing in pidgin French was difficult
