I took a new approach to finding those hidden gems that some call vandalism this week. Usually I have a neighborhood in mind before heading out, but this time I decided to drive until a tag caught my eye just simply heading south on the east side of town. A few blocks into the Hosford neighborhood (the area on the waterfront between Hawthorn and Powell) I passed a telephone pole that read NOMAD. Feeling that this was the sign (literally) I had been waiting for, I parked the whip. Within 20 minutes of walking in what I was considering a random path, I had found all of my favorites to date - HUMEN, more NOMAD, and another huge BERM along with some talent I haven't seen up North. I was finding tags and throw ups so fast that I felt like a bobble head just whipping around snapping shots. Portland has talent folks so look around, and if anyone ever needs a look out, look no further.
