Sure, this time of the year is a little gray, a little wet, maybe even a little too cold in Portland. Yet, I still love this city. In fact, a little more than before.
Portland has many names, and one of them is "Bridgetown."
With two rivers, one on the north separating it from Washington State (the Columbia River) and its tributary dividing the city lengthwise (the Willamette River), it's no surprise that the city has all together, 14 bridges(!)
During this season, one can hardly see the sun in the sky. It's a shame especially with these bright fall colors all around. On the other hand, to a photographer it becomes blessing (cloudy days are best for taking portraits) or a challenge.
As you can see, I've taken these photos around sunset (there was sun?!??) until dusk, and early evening. I love bridges, not only for their symbolical meaning, but also for the opportunity of travel they present.
You only need to do it once and it's FREE!
