On the Streets of Portland again

On Target | Portland | 2017

Back in the Rose City, staying once more at the Heathman Hotel on Portland’s Broadway. The week was all work without as much as a chance to touch my camera, but Friday night I took the Olympus OM-D E-M1 with the mZuiko 12-40mm F/2.8 along while going to the Target supermarket in Morrison Street to by myself some basic supplies (there is just no way eating out every night on a two-week business trip). The above photo I took in front of one of the shop windows of the Target. I loved the lady boxer, positioned myself at the rail of the city train station tin my back and then it was just a matter of the right person walking by. I took the image at 1/80 sec @ f/5 and ISO 1000 with 30mm focal length. For a fe more photos continue after the jump…

Pizza ? | Portland | 2017

Just across from the Target in 10th Avenue is a square with lots of the famous Portland Food Carts. Here I shot the Pizza Boy, image specs are 1/50 sec @ f/4.5 and ISO 1600 with 40mm focal length.

Portland is full of great mural art, the girl overseeing the parking I found at the corner of 2nd Avenue and Stark Street. The days of torrential train paid off with leaving nice puddles to use for reflections. Image specs are 1/6 sec at f/2.8 and ISO 1600. It was pretty dark, so I needed to shoot wide open with this low shutter speed to get some light in the photo.

Night Drive | Portland | 2017

At the corner of 10th Avenue and Morrison Street is this colorful Mexican Restaurant providing a great background to shoot light trails of the passing traffic, again the wet streets  (it was still raining as it was the whole week) reflecting nicely. Image specs are 1/8 sec @ f/2.8 and ISO 250 with 26mm focal length.

I shot more few nice images that evening, but I need to save them to post during next week when the job that pays the bills once more ties me to the office and I have no opportunity to go out with the cam.

Have a great Sunday!
