Spotted on the Street: Ali

I meet so many interesting people on the streets of Portland. Ali and I were both sitting on benches along Commercial Street and I decided to go over and chat with him. Not only did I love what he was wearing, but I had a gut instinct that he had some good stories to share. Turns out, Ali has only been in Portland for a little over a year, having moved here from Georgia. He is originally from Iraq and we talked at length about the differences between his country and ours. Before I left, he gave me his mailing address so I could send him copies of these photos. As much as I adore the style of the young guys in Portland, a gentleman in a suit, tie and hat simply can’t be beat.
