I spent last week in Portland, mainly to visit the North American Handmade Bike Show. We took Amtrak down and rode our bikes all over Portland. The show was over-whelming, too many people too many $5,000 frames, but Portland was wonderful. We had surprisingly warm weather(considering that the weekend before Portland had snow) and we rode late into the night exploring the city.

I especially liked the Hawthorne neighborhood. Portland has much to offer, so many small shops, still so many gritty areas to explore; I really need to go back and shoot black and white there. I'm not so sure I could live there though. I don't think I could live in a river town, I think I need the salt air of a port town.
