I ran into the Brown twins on the street while visiting San Francisco in 1987. I had no idea who they were, but asked if I could take their photo. They struck a pose without missing a beat and informed me that they were the city's unofficial ambassadors of good will, which I found easy to believe.

As I walked on I remember thinking about how delightful and charming they were, then wondering if they were in drag.

Six months later I was back in Chicago looking through a design annual when I came across a print ad for coffee that featured them. One was regular, one decaf. 

The photo was shot on 120 film with this toy camera.
