This was shot on the Portland River Walk along with the previous image from here. If I was to be honest I would tell you I screwed up the name and this one was to be titled the sweet spot. Oh well. I haven’t worked in black and white lately and its been fun to do a few images. For images like this it’s just more interesting when you do a black and white because it then becomes about textures…

Sweet Spot

Sweet Spot

This was taken in Portland last year. After going through the images I found a few more that I figured I wanted to process. I remember the day I took this because it was cold and grey. I was up before dawn and doing long exposures while the sky was still dark. As it got light I just kept pressing on and shooting not knowing what I was going to get out of it. Happy I did. I have discovered that…

Portland Bridges

Portland Bridges

No idea what the name of this bridge is or any of them. All I know is I was in Portland, Oregon standing on a floating dock and taking images. I was in Portland last year for for work which I took this image. There wasn’t very good light and I was shooting at the ass crack of dawn which is not my normal time. I am the landscape photographer that will do evening and night shots until dawn but…

Since I was in the archives with the Portland, Oregon photo from yesterday I figured why not see what else was there. For the flower lover(s) out there I clicked on the stuff I shot at the Portland Rose Gardens. It’s strange what I will and will not let through anymore. I know these images aren’t great. Still, I figured why not. Sometimes you need to let go and just go with what you want. I know there are flaws in…

Bridge Among The Clouds

I took this photo in Portland out of an Uber while a group of us were heading to dinner at Pok Pok. They specialize in food from South East Asia and in particular North/North East areas of Thailand. If you know Thailand that means Issan! I will be making a visit to Udon Thani this year so will see how authentic their fare is. I will tell you that if you have never been to Thailand but enjoy Thai cuisine most…

Flower Squares – Part Two

Flower Squares – Part Two

Here are the second half of the flowers I published yesterday. These were all taken in Portland, Oregon at the public Rose Garden. If it wasn’t for people I worked with wanting to get there I doubt I would have ever taken the photos. There is a bit of a story behind editing these images. It almost didn’t happen. My hands were hurting from lugging around my tripod and Nikon D810 earlier in the day. While it’s not super cold,…

Flower Squares – Part One

Flower Squares – Part One

I have been getting requests for flowers from my Mom almost daily. Since she reads and comments daily I’ll humor her not for just one day but two! The whole flower thing started when I was a new at photography. I had no real clue what I was doing. If I was outside it was flowers. If I was inside it was my cat. Over the years my photography got better and I realized I hated flowers because I learned…

Hawthorne Bridge

Hawthorne Bridge

I love having lots of stuff to work on in my catalogue. It keeps me from getting bored with one specific area or thing. While I haven’t been to Portland, Oregon since May I still have stuff I shot and never edited it. This is the Hawthorne Bridge in Portland, Oregon. I know this because I looked it up. Otherwise I would not have had a clue. This was right outside my hotel so it’s one of the first images…

Portland Roses – Part 2

Portland Roses – Part 2

This is the rest of the roses from Portland, Oregon that I shot. I wish the weather was better when I was out there visiting but the shots I got were pretty good and I did enjoy visiting the city. Would have loved to see the Japanese Gardens that were next to the Rose Garden but I was out of time and I had a plane to catch to San Diego. I also want to say that this is the…

Portland Roses – Part 1

Portland Roses – Part 1

It’s my Mom’s birthday today. She would be the one that comments everyday on every post. She often times mentions that I should have more flowers. I often respond offline that I am not a flower photographer. They were great when I first started in photography but not so much now. I periodically take pictures of them and throw them up on the site to make her happy. It it with great fanfare that I held these images back from…
