    1. Tabor -- I could have added more to this photo and yes, told a story with it but I felt it would be best to let the reader reach out and imagine their own interpretation of the jacket.thanks for the very nice words Tabor -- barbara

  3. I do like your photos, like that one that reveals a person without a person actually being in the picture.
    I had some things to say about Vancouver, but I thought, why express my opinions? I left the Portland area 17 years ago, so what I say would be out of date.

    1. Hattie -- Did not realize that you had lived in Portland. Would be interested in hearing your opinions about the area even if they are dated. This area is certainly different from the one I just left. thanks for the nice comment -- barbara

    1. Ken Mac -- Thank you. Clothes can have a language of their own especially as they are worn over time and especially from working. Sorta a Studs Terkel approach. -- barbara.
