Brief Encounters is a collection of people I have met. Maybe our paths crossed for a mere 15 seconds or maybe for a more substantial 15 minutes. Nevertheless, the encounters were all brief. Some people told me their life story, others didn't even reveal their name. It depended on the day, my mood, the weather, the country, the language, my surroundings, and everything really. It depended on the person. It always depends on the person.

For one of my classes we needed to take photos of Tourists at Santo Spirito. Which is a plaza with a beautiful church. Unfortunately we went on a cold day and there was no one there. As soon as we saw this man looking at the church we ran over to him and asked to make his photo. I don't remember his name, but I know he was from America and I think he was traveling alone.
