Seattle, WA is about 3 hours away from Portland, OR so my friend Jessica and I made a weekend out of it. We lucked out, it was a beautiful sunny day, nothing I expected. We explored Pike Place Market; I photographed workers, passerby, out of towners and performers. No one was reluctant in having their photograph taken – it made my job easy. Everyone was happy to be outside, which made me happy. I felt a sense of community.
