Pier Sunrise

A pleasant sunrise behind the pier in Old Orchard Beach this morning. Eagle-eyed viewers might have noticed an increase in non-Portland photos recently. This is due to a temporary relocation due to home renovations. It's been nice seeing some different sights but look forward to being back in town soon.

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.
