On a cold, rainy, and dreary day in January 2012, I joined a group of photographers at Portland’s Union Station to do a photowalk. Brian Matiash, then with Google Plus, organized and led the photowalk. Brian is an inspiring travel and landscape photographer and now has a photography podcast called the No Name Photo Show.
Google Plus is a now defunct part of Google that had an amazing interface for photographers, when it first started. I was an early adopter of Google Plus, but it went by the wayside for me when Google decided to only support the interface on Android phones. Before that, it was where I posted most of my photography.

Hair of the Dog Brewery
After the photowalk was over, we all met at a local brewery, Hair of the Dog. While I’m not much of a beer person, they had an amazing hard cider from Carlton Cyderworks.
This was what greeted us on our way back to our vehicle that night. It was a great night for photography, despite the rain.
