Dog Creek Falls is a good warmup waterfall subject to photograph. The weather was mild and not scorching hot. The wind was calm, which made it much better for longer exposure to smooth out the falls while not having blurry vegetation from wind movement. I brought sandals for walking in the creek, so I can…

I strongly condemn any speech or action promoting racism, homophobia, bigotry, hatred, white supremacy, and Nazism anywhere. There is no place for either or both in the United State of America or anywhere else in the world. These are problems created by some that have no positive solution or outcome. There is no discussion

Delayed highway reopening on northbound SE McLoughlin between SE Tacoma St. and SE Harold St. in southeast Portland clogged the street for the morning rush hour. On SE 32nd Ave in Milwaukie, cars backed up six blocks. I got around it, as well as the congestion on SE Tacoma St. for the traffic heading over ...

I felt the need to get back to my photography. I also felt the need to get out of my house. Fortunately, today was cooler and Trimet wasn’t having a system-wide meltdown. I packed my camera and headed into downtown Portland and capture a few scenes, with a lunch stop at Joe’s Burger first. Today ...

A sandwich board I spotted along the riverfront in southwest Portland is a boozy one. “Soup of the Day: Tequila!” I cannot argue with that. Unfortunately, I ate earlier, so I’ll pass.

Ah, my morning breakfast and mocha at The Office. No, that’s not “the office” in terms of my employment, but The Office, a small tap store and cafe in Milwaukie, Oregon. The Office serves light, hot and cold breakfast, lunch, and dinner items. Drinks range from coffee and espresso, to soda, to hard cider,

On my way to the office supply store on Monday morning, I passed a sign that caught my eye. It seems that one animal clinic decided to be a little “punny” with their variable message sign. The Linwood Animal Clinic sign along SE King Rd. in Milwaukie, Ore., message read: “Your Pet Will Love Us ...

Wind farms started popping up in central Oregon in the mid-2000’s. On a road trip back on December 3, 2008, I captured a shot from Ore. 206 a crane hoisting a turbine tower into place. Today, there is literally a forest of wind turbines making up a wind farm. Drive on I-84 or SR-14 east

Little Zig Zag Falls in the Mt. Hood National Forest is a neat waterfall subject to photograph. It is a fascinating waterfall with a short, easy hike to get to. It’s a perfect natural subject for me to get back into nature photography. The fun challenge to this shot was the setup in a frigid,

The sun reflecting off the mist with the spillway in the shadows caught my eye as I drove past Bonneville Dam this morning. I decided to go with a tight shot onto the spillway at 200mm on a DX cropped sensor, emphasizing the light and shadows, as well as the structure. On a DX frame,
