First Look Photo: A Study in Contrast

March 21, 2018

I was photographing this section of Portland, where graffiti reigns.  After a couple of shots, I noticed a clean cut business man walking through the area.  This added an element of contrast to the cluttered art work.

Photo Friday: Coffee Man

January 6, 2017

Last Wednesday I spent some time downtown, looking for a photo to take for school.  While down there I spent some time doing street photography.  I was trying to work on my story telling with pictures, and I think the last photo I took, while waiting for the bus, does it the best.

I used a window in the bus stop as a framing device, of an older homeless man who spends his day sitting in the same entryway, in a wheelchair, with a sleeping bag covering his legs.  While sitting there, people will bring him coffee, to help, which is why he has coffee cups lined up next to him.  I especially how the coffee cups helped tell the story of this man.
