$2 portrait project began with Thomas Hawk.
Alabama didn't approach us, he was standing on a street corner with a great sign and we went up to him. When I explained the $2 portrait project to him, he was happy to have his picture taken in exchange for $2.
He wasn't very talkative, but said he had been in Portland for about 10 years and hated the weather. Not surprising, he had come from Alabama. When I asked him if he thought he would go back, he just nodded his no.
This was Alabama's totally creative sign. I loved it.
