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…

Vertically Natured

Vertically Natured

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…

Washed Ashore

Washed Ashore

I saw these logs when I took a path down towards the Willamette River in Portland. No idea how high the river gets but assume these were logs and stuff were washed ashore when the river was high from rain. I shot these with my Olympus TG-4 since it was far more maneuverable than my Sony A7R that was mounted on a tripod. I could climb on the rocks to get to the angles I was looking for instead of…

Portland Flowers

Portland Flowers

Not feeling much like editing from a lot of things coming at me I go with the one thing I can edit in my sleep, flowers. So I present just some of the images I shot of flowers while I was in Portland. These were taken while we were waiting for a table at the restaurant called Pok Pok in Portland. They had a cool system where they just send a text to your phone when your table is ready….

Reflections in the Glass

Reflections in the Glass

This post almost didn’t happen. I was out with social and work obligations and I wasn’t sure I would get back to the photo archives before I had to edit for tomorrow. However I got home earlier than anticipated so I could edit. This is a very simple edit. I liked the reflection on the rear window and I took the shot. When I started to edit I just went ahead and added a few filters in Lightroom and then…

Ghost In The Sky

Ghost In The Sky

This is another one from Portland and shot from the hotel I was staying at. I would say it was the view from my room but it wasn’t. A group of us were coming in from dinner and a friend invited us up to her room for a nightcap so I took a peek out her balcony and was like I’m taking a picture. Sadly I only had my Sony RX100M3 on me and no tripod but one must adapt….

This Way To Seattle

This Way To Seattle

No idea the name of the bridge. I know there are only a few you can drive across the Willamette River in Portland, Oregon. I shot this a little after 7 in the morning I think but there was hardly any sun showing so I knew it was going to be in monochrome. As for the title of the image, the sign says Seattle. Did the usual standard editing and then used Tonality CK for my monochrome conversion. I have…

Wave Crashing In

Wave Crashing In

I didn’t plan on showing any of the images I shot in Portland, Oregon just yet I really liked this one so I went ahead and edited it. This is a shot of some wake coming on on the Willamette River here in Portland. I was out doing a sunrise shoot (no sun). You get very easy access to the river and I was down right on the water. I had my Olympus TG-4 which is waterproof so I just put…
