Reason #572 why I love this neighborhood:

Architect and special effects photographer Kevin Scott is currently set up in Occidental Square Park in the hopes of capturing portraits of everyone and anyone who comes through the park in a 24 hour period.

While I stood there, waiting to get my picture taken, interested commuters kept stopping by to find out more and to sign the disclosure to get their own portrait taken.

He has been there since 5:30 this morning, and will be around until 5:30 Saturday morning (or maybe more like 4:30am).

Stop by and check it out — the pictures will eventually be collated into a coffee table book, and posted online at: www.occidentalallday.com sometime in December.

Sponsors of the project include: Kevin Scott, Vanessa Naff, and Olson Kundig Architects
