Vancouver Guardian Angels
Last week I got a facebook request to be a friend with the Vancouver Guardian Angels. I’m not sure exactly how they selected me to be a friend, maybe a random search of people living in Vancouver? I confirmed that I would be their friend and then boldly sent an email over to see if I could 1) take pictures of them in action & walking the beat so I could add that to my portfolio of photos and 2) talk to them a bit so I could do a write up for the Metroblogger. So far, a member named Slider has agreed to my requests and I’ll be meeting up with him and a few others next week for a walk around town.
I don’t usually approach strangers online and ask them take their pictures (hey, that’s what friends are for, right?). But, I thought this would be a good thing to do. I’ve seen these guys around Vancouver and have definitely heard about them in other cities. Now is my opportunity to satisfy my curiosity and find out why these people volunteer their time to walk in parts of town that, honestly, make me pretty nervous.
