Take Out

Little Giant in the West End has become a popular takeout destination. Glad to see some parking spots being used for a different purpose around town as well.

Appears that 94 Commercial Street is getting a face lift. The building had a pretty noticeable tilt developing.

Sailing Nowhere

An outtake from a foggy morning in May. It's hard to get up for sunrises this time of year, so any interesting weather in the morning is always a treat.

Rising Again

While my photography is not usually very topical, on a personal level I have been really moved by the recent spotlight on systemic racism in America. A big part of why I choose to live in Portland is because it is a diverse place and I feel more than ever the importance of speaking up and of being a better neighbor. This "Again We Rise" mural behind Monument Square is by local artists Ryan Adams, Jason McDonald and Mike Rich.
