Portland in Fall

Despite the fact that we didn’t have much of a summer in Portland this year, fall has been beautiful.




Although I timed these shots for the streets to look empty, I took these about noon, and there was quite a bit of traffic. Some of these shots I had to wait 10 – 15 minutes for a break in traffic. Opal motivated me to go out and take these pictures with her post Changing Seasons: Autumn.

I have more of this Fall Foliage Set on Flickr.

    Glad that Opal motivated you! These are such pretty shots. I love to see tree lined streets and in Fall – it is just spectacular! Thanks for posting these!

    Oh, by the way, I believe I have lost our game of volleyblog. I couldn’t concentrate long enough to come up with a return post. Then things got crazy around here. So I wanted to say thank you for a good, clean game and if you ever feel up to another, I’d be happy to play! **bows to your Volleyblog Excellence and leaves the room**

    teeni – Thanks, I had fun taking these shots, but this helps to motivate me to purchase a new camera. This pictures are all straight from the camera, but I was thinking of trying a little PhotoShop processing to see how that turns out.

    The game of volleyblog is not as easy as you would think. I don’t know about you, but I was trying to find an obtuse angle to post from yours. It was also a bit harder because our blogs have such different topics. It is good to try projects that stretch your creative side.

    Hey Thomas,
    This pictures are truly lovely. Thanks for posting them. 🙂
    I’m impressed with what you did with volleyblog I know it had to be hard because your website has a much narrower focus. You did well! Congrats!

    Opal – Knowing what great shots you take that is a good compliment, thank you. I always enjoy it when you post your pictures, so hopefully others will enjoy these. I am also trying to get in some practice, so when I do get the new camera I will be ready.

    Volleyblog was a difficult but cool exercise. Doing the guest post on Snoskred’s Life in the Country and volleyblog with teeni were good practice for writing in different areas.
