My first visit to Portland was in 2008, when I was checking out Oregon as a place to live. I spent a couple days in the city before heading to southern Oregon. Since then I have been back numerous times. Here are some pictures from the many walks I've taken through Portland, Oregon. Portland is a fine city, full of great people and lots of positive, creative energy. I have many good friends living there, and I always enjoy my visits. It's funny how fascinated I am with city life, without really wanting to live in a city, like ever.
