Problem House?

Problem House?
I thought I was really in for it today. I just had to have one more shot of "the blue house." I watched the guy inside open and softly shut the door, looked at me and walked down the stairs as I walked towards the sidewalk and said sternly "Is there a problem with my house?" A bit surprised I said "Oh no, I think it's cool, I was just out walking, I like the color" I wasn't looking at the guy but at the house as I saw him pointing along the side and told me that his neighbor calls and reports him. "Oh no, no, no" I said, still looking at the house "I just noticed the color and thought it was a really cool looking house." I remember him staying "Thanks" and with that he turned and walked down the street. I watched him as he went for a bit (sorry now that I didn't get a picture as I don't remember the guys face at all, I must not have ever looked at him.)

I was startled at first when this all occurred I knew he spotted me out front taking a picture. I saw him shut the TV off through the window. Later after I came down off my adrenaline rush I was amused as I went over the exchange in my mind again. He just didn't want to be harassed by the neighbor anymore, he wasn't bothered at all that some strange man he'd never met before was taking a picture of his house :D

The people in Portland are still cool even when they're a bit ticked.

Interesting moment :) I've sometimes had a paranoid person coming out at me since he happened to be on the street I was taking picture of
