Guest photo of the day: Stranger # 44

I really love the idea of photographing strangers on the street, in part, I think, because I have such a hard time imagining myself doing so! You have to be bold to propose photographing someone you've not only never met, but simply flag down on the street because they look interesting. BUT look at the results! Thiago Ramos has captured an amazing image here, perfectly lit (I wish his exif data were visible so I could tell whether he used a fill flash), perfectly captured with an interesting expression, perfectly composed with a depth of field that gives a sense for the busy street without it intruding on the image.
