After the Rapture

I saw on NPR that "kevinism" tweeted a Rapture prank:—" On Saturday, take some of your old clothes and shoes and leave sets of them arranged on sidewalks and lawns around town."
That's not what these are. They're just some sketches of outfits I saw yesterday in downtown Portland. The sun is out, the hoods are off, and Portlanders are getting comfortable.
In Paris, I didn't see women wearing tee-shirts, men wearing shorts, or anyone other than joggers and children wearing tennis shoes. Not so in Portland. Just so you don't think I'm a fashion-snob:  yesterday I was wearing jeans, a tee-shirt and clunky sandals, and no hood because it finally stopped raining!

Vicky we can have a post rapture party after Kathee's party. Portlanders have their own sense of style, very very casual. Love your pictures,
