Taylor – Serving the People & Dancing

Taylor was a server at a restaurant some friends and I recently attended. When I saw she had a brief moment to spare I asked her if she would be interested in answering a few quick questions for the blog. Clearly she was good with it and here is what she had to say.
(Note: a bit of a tuff lighting situation going on in this photo and I wouldn’t recommend shooting handheld at such a low shutter speed unless using an IS lens.)

    Rob, I like that you have a good mix of people in your series. I worked on a paper that had a people of Cleveland section, and reporters were obsessed with out-weirding each other…one-legged, transexual, face-painting, Browns fans so drunk they had passed out on the waterfront – no, that wasn’t weird enough. The everyday people that are often overlooked were…overlooked. And they’re usually intersting in their own right.

      Thank you! I am glad you are enjoying the people of Calgary πŸ™‚ I am going to start to try and vear off script a little more in the future and ask more questions relating to the people and their answers. Hopefully that will keep things interesting πŸ˜‰

      • coyotero2112 · February 1, 2013

        Yeah, a question or two out of left field (to use an Americanism) usually draws out some answers that the subject has never used before…and can bring out some unusual views on their views of life.

      • Rob Moses · February 1, 2013

        Agreed! πŸ™‚ I got some ideas in the works.

    What a cheery looking gal. We went out for Thai food tonight…I love when I don’t have to plan and cook a meal. It’s right downtown adjacent to the St Josephs Cathedral on Jasper Ave…..really good food if you ever find yourself in Edmonton.. It’s called Bua Thai

    • Rob Moses · February 2, 2013

      She was definitely cheery πŸ™‚ And I LOVE me some Pad Thai! πŸ™‚ I’ll check it out next time I am up that way.

    Do you give the people (who you photo and interview) the web adress to your blog?

    I love that she is a dancer … I want to know more where she is headed…why not the dance direction right now?

    • Rob Moses · February 2, 2013

      She said she’s just doing it for fun right now πŸ™‚ But about giving the address, at first I was just telling them verbally the website address and hopping they would remember it haha, but I recently got some business cards with the website address on it to give to people πŸ™‚
