Exploring Downtown Portland

Posted in Photography, Travel by daybf on March 21, 2011

I frequented downtown Portland throughout my stay. On this particular day I took the streetcar downtown to catch a bus to get to the Hawthorne District. So, I took this opportunity to photograph some of the area while the weather was pretty nice.

I was surprised to see a bunch of seagulls flying around/searching for scraps of food. Below is the MAX passing by the pretty City Hall building.

The Portlandia statue crouches above the entrance of the Portland Building. The statue was built by Raymond Kaskey and installed in 1985. It’s the second largest copper sculpture after the Statue of Liberty and is based on the design of Portland’s city seal.

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

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.

Exploring Portland’s Pearl District

Posted in Photography, Travel by daybf on March 5, 2011

When I visited Portland I stayed at the Inn at Northrup Station, which is a super fun and colorful hotel filled with work from local artists. I’ll put some photos of the hotel on here eventually. The hotel is on Northrup and NW 20th right near a streetcar stop and within walking distance to a variety of cafes, shops, restaurants, and bars.  So, I was closest to the Northwest/Pearl District and spent a lot of time walking through it.

Here’s a vintage-y edit of a common street scene of an oncoming streetcar:
