This was Heli’s first photo session with a photographer.
This photograph was taken in the doorway of the Skunkfunk store at 1475 Haight Street, in San Francisco, California, USA. A shop employee approached me and gave me the shop’s business card. She gave me permission to continue taking pictures, and asked me to send her a link if I posted any pictures. I have done so. Skunkfunk has two different website addresses: Skunkfunk and ShopSkunkfunk.
I had never heard of this store before. They have stores in France, Ireland, Spain, Portugal and the United States. I didn’t go inside, but from what I saw, it does not look like a chain store, which probably helps it fit in on Haight Street.
I was surprised when a United States Postal Service mail carrier assumed Heli worked at Skunkfunk and tried to give the shop’s bundle of mail to her, as I was photographing her.
