day thirty-four

I'm winding down. Getting ready to end the summer visit to Portland and my "At Least One Photo A Day" project. The exercise has been challenging, but I like that I pushed myself to shoot every single day. There were days I got the shot in the first few minutes, but most days I wandered around town for at least a couple hours... often more. I certainly got to know the city of Portland well, and I met many interesting people.

For the most part,  I ran into people who like to be photographed. The people I met liked the attention. And they enjoyed encountering a stranger who found them interesting.

There were plenty of days I didn't want to shoot. There were days I just didn't want to power on. It was harder than I thought it  would be.

I hope you've enjoyed the quotes I found to accompany the photos.

I've also been shooting some color stuff while in Portland. That work is a lot more accessible and predictable. It's more of a record of the memorable things we did while in the Pacific Northwest this summer. I'll share the "best of" those tomorrow.
