Portland – part four – walkabout

These photos were taken the first day of the workshop and then afterwards when I was wandering aimlessly around the city. If you’ve never been to Portland, hopefully they give you a feel for the city as you see it through my eyes. If you are familiar with the city, maybe they will bring back some memories.

Don’t forget to check out Parts 1 thru 3 at the links below:

The first day of the workshop another attendee (Jennifer) and I went out shooting in the light of the evening before dinner. She introduced me to Jake’s Famous Crawfish. I would fly back up there for dinner if I could! The night photos were shot after out tummies were full.

On my last day after the docent-led tour (part three) I wandered around on my own:

The last two photos on the right are of the Benson Hotel where I stayed and the workshop was held.

    Lovely, I’d like to go there; in fact I only wish to travel in the U.S. because I didn’t finish seeing many states I wanted to see.

      Maria, I feel the same way. I want to see Yellowstone Park… there might be a trip next year but not sure. I need to make a list of all the states/cities I want to see and hit them one by one.

    As long as I’ve got your blog, Roslyn, I’ll never have to leave my city. 🙂 Great photos! Thank you so much for sharing your spectacular photos.

    You and Portland were the perfect mix, Ros. I’m glad you got to take this trip, and share the spoils here in your fabulous four-parter.
