Exploring Portland’s Nob Hill District, 21st & 23rd Ave Neighborhood

Posted in Photography, Portraiture, Travel by daybf on March 17, 2011

Our hotel was closest to Portland’s Nob Hill district in northwest Portland. I spent one early afternoon walking up and down 23rd and 21st avenue taking photos and browsing some shops.


Went to a cool coffee shop called Coffee Time on 21st avenue. Awesome rock & roll painted outdoor tables:
I photographed the barista (left), and a man from San Francisco (right) sitting near a table lamp. We had a quick conversation about photography (since I had my camera around my neck) and then I asked him to pose, and he went right into deep stare mode.
Silly self-portrait in the graffiti-filled Coffee Time bathroom.

    Another great post… I like your style of taking lots of photos and posting these in a collage. This arrangement gives a neat sense of the place you were at. And I like the details that you focus on: mosaic floor in front of the door, snail sculpture on a chair. The portraits are cool for getting a sense of the people there. Awesome stuff.
