The story of a photograph- two years ago I began working on a project about a local bus route- the # 75 - in the St. Johns neighborhood. I heard bicycle bells ringing and out of the corner of my eye saw a group of riders approaching. I instinctively ran to the middle of the street and had time to snap just one photograph. It turned out be a wedding party with the bride and groom up front leading the way. Fast forward- while scouting locations for a new project about hidden Portland a few days ago, I met a woman in a warehouse space in SE Portland. When I gave her my card and mentioned the Bus 75 project, she instantly remembered the photo, because it was her friend- who turned out to the bride! This woman was also in the photo, riding right behind the wedding couple. No doubt Portland is still a small town.
