This is Portland.

Portland had a comfortable atmosphere.  I could feel there were like-minded creative individuals around. Exploring was easy. Good public transportation. An even better book store: Powell’s, of course. You can easily find unique cafes and hot air balloon fairs. I felt alive. I’d come here again. Maybe to live.

These little girls were so free. Playing with the waterfall in Jamison Square Park. It was very peaceful.

These guys were awesome, we met up from Couchsurfing.com. We spoke about Portland, life and what we wanted to be when we grow up. ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

This cafe, was by far one of coolest. I wish it was here in L.A. It was called Backspace, a very hipster cafe, with wifi and computer rentals. It was also an art venue/gallery and a venue for bands. I came here twice.

I spent hours in Powell’s. One really has to commit a few days to go through the whole book store.

This was the Festival of Balloons in Tigard. I shot two roles of film, and one of them came out all messed up. I was really upset, I had some great shots. This is how they served their fries. I thought this fair was such a cute place to bring a date.

One thought on “This is Portland.

  1. Great job capturing the essence of Portland. Michael and I got to explore it when I was photographing a client’s conference several years ago. We loved the city, hopping on the free train, the Saturday Market, and of course, Powell’s Books (all the locations). I can see why you would want to live there. We loved it.
