Christmas Comes One Time a Year! I really enjoy continuing the christmas tradition, even though the younger ones are loosing the “faith”. The whole preparation, getting the tree, putting the Red Wings player in the window. You know, all the proper christmas trappings, of course. The Holidays are super fun. Friends, family and fun […]
Vote for Pedr, ah Me! I receive promotional emails from Midwest Photo. I purchased things from them in the past so you know, you are going to receive these types of emails, for sure. I came across their email inviting me to submit to their photo contest. I thought sure why not, plus it gives […]
Grain or not too Grainy… Well I just tried some of Kodak’s Portra 800. Nice stuff I would have to say. It does not seem too grainy from my tastes, I kinda like it. I could shoot in really low light and hand hold. The film also works for everyday shooting.

Industrial Landscapes Continued I have been biking along North Columbia and connecting with the Columbia Slough trail. It is full of all sorts of industrial goodness and a plesant mix of nature. The city of Portland seems to excel at this mixture of green space within the city. I have taken my boys along this […]
My Rollei and Urban Landscapes For the last several years when I need a quick get-a-way, I get on my motorcycle and ride what I call goin’ around the block. I take N. Columbia Boulevard and ’round back home. This small tour takes me past a very industrial area of Portland, OR. There is generally […]
Looking up the Columbia Photograph I was asked again this year to donate to the Marin Montessori School. Last year I donated a print called Worst in Show. It was of a photograph of a motorcycle labeled “Worst in Show” at The One Motorcycle Show in Portland, OR in 2011. The Photo was a success […]
