April 8, 2006: Portland, Night

    Newer Older

    Day three was a visit to OMSI, which was also very cool -- but it poured rain all day while we were there, and it's not really much of a place for shooting photos, anyway.

    However, the visit did give me the chance to scope out spots along the east side of the river and I found one place right at the edge of the OMSI parking lot which had access to the river's edge -- then came back that night to shoot a bunch of evening photos.

    The first set were all cool, but dark. Then I figured out that I needed to adjust the shutter speed and BOOM - that solved it.

    Part of my 1/365 project: 1 photo per day for 365 days.

      Ahhh...my beautiful homecity. The KOIN Tower (the funny shaped orange building in the middle) has always been my favorite part of the skyline.
