Back In Bridgetown: Portland, Oregon

Sure, this time of the year is a little gray, a little wet, maybe even a little too cold in Portland.  Yet, I still love this city. In fact, a little more than before.

Cathedral Park

Portland has many names, and one of them is "Bridgetown."

Portland

With two rivers, one on the north  separating it from Washington State (the Columbia River) and its tributary dividing the city lengthwise (the Willamette River), it's no surprise that the city has all together, 14 bridges(!)

Willamette River

During this season, one can hardly see the sun in the sky.  It's a shame especially with these bright fall colors all around.  On the other hand, to a photographer it becomes blessing (cloudy days are best for taking portraits) or a challenge.

Portland Convention Center

As you can see, I've taken these photos around sunset (there was sun?!??) until dusk, and early evening.  I love bridges, not only for their symbolical meaning, but also for the opportunity of travel they present.
