Portland Through my Eyes

Instead of creating a new thread every time I shoot my city, I'll just add more pictures to this thread accordingly.



P.S. It always rains here.

Beautiful pictures, Derek! Thanks for sharing.

I´ve liked this thread and pictures very much. Stunning views of Mt Hood in the distance, of course. Portland looks very nice. I´d like to visit it.

Congrats and greetings from Madrid, Spain!

Well done, Derek! Is this your first thread, or did you do one of SD before you left?

I didn't do an SD thread before I left, unfortunately. I'm not really sure why.


I think it's because I lived in the suburbs and the city was 20 miles away, as opposed to living right in the city in Portland.

Me too!


I need to find some more good spots for some better angles.

You should come sometime. Perhaps one day I'll make it to Europe.

It's always interesting to see another perspective on this city. Good shots, especially the Saturday Market. I should check that out sometime.

Nice shots! Love the two mountains (St. Helens and Adams?). I think we must have passed each other in the last few days taking pics...

I didn't even notice Adams in the background until right now when you said it.


On second thought, that might actually be Mt. Rainier!



Well if you did see anyone taking pictures yesterday, I would've been easy to spot as I was wearing a bright pink Rogue Bacon Maple Ale shirt with a Chargers hat and I was with my girlfriend who was wearing white shorts.
