Oregon: Downtown Portland

I needed to head into downtown Portland for an appointment, so I took my camera with me, with only my 24mm 1.8 lens.

As soon as I stepped off the MAX train at Pioneer Courthouse Square, it was apparent they were set up for an event: the Festival of Flowers.


The festival has been going on since May 22, but the flowers will be on sale tomorrow at 8 a.m.

Still in the Square but a little farther away was an art installation by Larry Yes. During the festival, Larry turned this 1979 Cadillac DeVille Anniversary Edition into a piece of “positive cosmic folk art” with love as the theme.


I loved seeing this Cadillac close up.

While my time in downtown Portland was brief, I’m reminded that you can always find something to interest you if you just look.
