On March 31st we had a full day of rain, but at the last 3 minutes before sunset, this showed up in a crack in the clouds.

I love how the bricks, on this sidewalk, have been cut into straight edged shapes to fit around the round shape of the light post.

Photo Friday: One Man’s Ordinary

February 9, 2018

The biggest issue with many photographers is they get complacent with their surroundings and don’t think they can find anything “interesting” to shoot.  I read an article during the 80’s that helped me through this problem. It said that what one man finds uninteresting, another finds amazing.

Don’t allow yourself to think you have nothing to shoot, because it’s all interesting to someone.

First Look Photo: City Architecture

Thanks to the wonderful website 52Frames.com I have been looking at some of the architecture of Portland.  I really like the looks of the city building, in the tower, at night.  I especially like the way the arches are lit up.
