Enjoying a stroll through downtown Portland with the Yashica Electro 35 loaded with Portra 160. These couple of blocks near the Ace Hotel aren't especially remarkable, but I love the mid-century buildings bookending the more classic brick structure.
I have three favorite bridges, out of all of the bridges in Portland, each for different reasons. For modern bridges, I love the Tillikum Crossing. For big, industrial hunks of metal, I love the Steel Bridge.
And for stunning elegance, I love the St. Johns Bridge.
I never get tired of taking a camera out to this beautiful gothic work of art. When the weather clears, I really ought to get the drone out and get some aerial footage.
Tanner Springs Park is one of my favorite spots in the city, and I can never resist pulling out a camera when I’m taking a walk through it. I absolutely adore the angular, zagging walkway and its companion undulating railroad track wall.
It is not unusual to see odd objects or interesting little scenes of cast-off belongings on the streets of Portland. One such thing I stumbled across on a walk one day in the NE part of the city were these glasses, just hanging out among the moss and plant life on a curb at the edge of the street. I left there where they were, for I could not know the reason behind their presence.
