I often get asked what makes me want to stop someone and take their photo. It usually comes down to seeing someone that I want to strike up a conversation with. And spotting someone with a ukulele doesn’t hurt either.

After all, it’s not often that you spot your own Mother on the streets of Portland! And yes, she’s more fashionable than I could ever be. Sigh.
