From the Masters | Salem Oregon Documentary Photographer

Finding the perfect subject is the hardest part.
— Mary Ellen Mark

Papa:  This jacket is pretty faded and worn.

Me:  That's okay, you normally wear it to the shop.  

Papa:  Should I wear a hat?

Me:  If you want.....

Papa:  I think I will wear my John Deere hat.

Me:  Perfect!
