North Portland has a famous person standing guard.

Who might it be?

Why would he guard the great city of Portland?

It’s Paul Bunyan! And according to his plaque:

Go Oregon. Go timber industry.

And thank you, Paul, for keeping our city safe from giant oxen and other scary creatures.

You Capture – Something New

10 Sep

I was worried about this You Capture.  What was I going to do?  And then, I made plans to go with a friend into Downtown Portland to take some photos.

This was perfect!  I hadn’t been in a real city for a while.  Here I was with several hours on my hands, my dad’s Nikon D60 *in* my hands and no baby.  Such a rewarding span of time.

I took photos of trains:

Overall, a very successful trip.
