Sweet Sound Of Street Sound

It’s amazing how many musicians there are in this town. Being a musician myself it’s the artists and performers that lure me to the streets of Portland. They are the real reason I return to these same streets every chance I have. After taking several shots of this young man I spoke with him for quite a while. He has one thing in common I find in all of the young artists I come in contact with; hope! He hopes. He has dreams for his future and actually believes he will accomplish his goals. Ah, to have the positive mindset of a younger man rather than the cynical hopeless “tude” of someone in the twilight of their experience. His hope made me do something I haven’t done for quite a long time; hope! I hope he succeeds.
