Lisbon, Portugal. Oct. 2018 // Met this ray of sunshine selling little souvenirs in front of a church— Slightly embarrassed she agreed to let me photograph her, and with a man translating, we exchanged our belief in each other being beautiful. Hahah. She never stopped smiling. — In general, Lisbon was filled with easily approachable, kind-hearted folk, with great senses of humor.

He moved to CA in 1970.
