The Slice

Every picture tells a story

When I see people who appear to be visitors to our city taking pictures of each other, I sometimes offer to take one for them that would include everyone in the group.

I realize I am not the only person who does this.

But I recently had a thought. Why aren't people worried that I will simply take off with the camera or phone?

I'd like to think it's because I seem trustworthy. But maybe it has more to do with the fact that I don't look like a fast runner.

Or perhaps tourists mistakenly think everyone in Spokane is honest and decent.
