After a six week hiatus I was back in Rose City this week. And amazingly, the weather matched the season, with some beautiful and warm summer days. Despite a fully loaded schedule I managed a small photowalk last evening, just taking my tiny Ricoh GR II that I had brought for this trip and doing a bit of walking through a mild Portland summer evening. I was looking for the famous “Keep Portland Weird” sign that I haven’t seen before, and that set the tone for the rest of my walk. For some more “weird” photographs from PDX continue after the jump…
Henri Cartier-Bresson once said: “Sharpness is a bourgeois concept”. Not that I want to excuse this shot of the German Shepherd riding “wide open” in this car that turned the corner in down town Portland. I included the photo because despite being blurred, for me it captures the “weird” summer atmosphere I experienced in Rose City last night.
Have a great weekend!
