Yesterday I shared a colorful panorama from the Portland Photowalk so tonight's photo is a little more muted. My goal was to help you feel the weather as you look at this image, the wind off of the river, the light rain, the slight smell of oil and fumes, that faint smell of iron that lets you know you're in an industrial area.
What I like about a good photowalk is that you aren't constrained by a set plan. I wandered off early because most of the group was going to cross the Burnside bridge but I like the Steel Bridge better. Once I made it to the Burnside Bridge on the opposite side of the river I met up with Brian Matiash. Although I hoped to meet up with people I didn't expect it, just one of life's happy accidents. At that point I had the photos I really wanted so we both set a decent pace and used a smartphone to hail a cab so we could collect our vehicles before joining everyone else for a drink, a snack and a chat.
