lhughey- I think that's what I've taken from the project thus far... that no matter how diferent their world may be from mine their is still a basic level of connection and compasion that exits in people.
airfrogusmc- I can't wait to see how the project will look either. I'm still not totally sure how far I want to take it or what direction to go but I have some ideas and plenty of time to get it sorted out. I'll be sure to keep posting updates here.
eeksnyc/troy bal/barkingspud/kraaazymike/doctorh/moeronn- thanks for the compliments guys all the positive feedback means a lot and I can't wait to continue with this project.
alabama-believe me, that something that goes through my head. i guess what gets me past the fear is knowing that im not doing anything illegal and that i've got plenty of proof i can show to any police officer to backup my story... ive got the gear, past photos, business cards, and the blog to show them as evidence. but you're right, its not easy to make the initial approach and im always nervous about it.
