Stumptown by David Wood, on Flickr My wife was up in Portland, reprising a role she had played here at the Shakespeare Festival in Ashland this summer. So I flew up there to see the closing weekend and wander around the city with my camera. Hawthorne Bridge by David Wood, on Flickr It rained almost continuously while I was there. But we Oregonians aren't ones to be put off by a little moisture. St. Johns Bridge by David Wood, on Flickr Portland was hacked out of the wooded hills above the Willamette River, so its nickname is "Stumptown." And legend has it that the earliest inhabitants would jump from stump to stump to avoid getting their boots muddy. 11th & Washington by David Wood, on Flickr Voodoo Doughnut by David Wood, on Flickr Only Oregonians would stand in line in the rain for a doughnut. Kelly's by David Wood, on Flickr Me? I ducked out of the rain into this little bar that had a bunch of old Brit bikes hanging from the ceiling. My kind of place! Incidentally, all of these images were shot with my new (used) A7RII, which somebody put up for sale on eBay for a Buy It Now price of US$1599 right before I happened to wander in and check the current offerings. I know I had said I wasn't interested in an A7RII. But the original owner had used it for just three months, and the camera had only 158 shutter activations. What could I do?
