Portland Walk

Saturday afternoon, Suzi, Troy, Kristi, and I walked downtown Portland. We attempted to rent bicycles, learning how next time we can rent more than one bicycle per account.

Along the way, I took pictures, including one with Vera. Thanks, Vera!

A street view of Park Avenue West

“The top floor is $3 million, the middle $2 million, and the bottom, $1 million,” said the man selling Street Roots cater-corner1Wow! So many alternative spellings and pronunciations. Choose the one you like. To be honest, I grew up calling this kitty corner. from the grand entrance of Portland’s new Park Avenue West building.2I like downtown Portland — the people, the energy, and the buildings. But I’m not comfortable taking pictures of people I don’t know. I guess that means I’m not a street photographer. Buildings are another matter. I like their lines, the textures and reflections on their surfaces, and the geometric shapes they form. “I don’t know what I’d do with a million-dollar studio.”

Portland Photo Walk

Ashley’s buying a camera seemed like a good excuse to roam downtown Portland. We wandered around Tanner Springs Park, Jamison Square, Pioneer Courthouse Square (where we caught an impromptu concert by Without Apology), Director Park, and The Fields Neighborhood Park. Then we walked the Eastbank Esplanade from the Vera Katz sculpture to north of Burnside and back.

Portland is beautiful! :-)
