Wow - what a compilation! I think it shows that despite the storm its weathered, PDX is still standing as an awesome, beautiful city. I have to say, every time I see Mt. Hood, to me, that is probably the most perfect looking stand alone mountain in the country.

I was humming Adagio for Strings as I scrolled. Amazing and moody thread. Great city. Great photos.

Awesome compilation. Sooo many beautiful shots, i especially like the nighttime black and whites. Way to capture our city in recovery from a rough couple years. Thanks for sharing!

Thank you all for your comments. After all, what is the point of making art if there's no feedback?

Mt. Hood on a clear day definitely helps project a level of calm and sturdiness in times like these. We're quite fortunate here in the Northwest with our snowcapped volcanoes.

Thank you. I'd say it's both because and in spite of hard times. Really has a way of making you appreciate all of the little pleasures of daily life even more.

I hope you get to make it out here someday. Even with everything we know is happening, it doesn't diminish this area's natural beauty and culture.

Exhaustive . . . I like that. Thank you. A surefire sign I made someone feel something.

That would've been an excellent alternative musical choice, but I didn't think of it. Thank you.

That was always my goal all along, what can I do to make people feel the soul of this particular place in this very particular time? It really pushed me in experimental and more creative directions, taking things from portraiture, street photography, paparazzi, cinematographers. And thanks for listening along to the music.

The night shooting was an intense experience. With everything that's happened and still ongoing, I'd been avoiding going out after dark, but the way I saw it, you only show the day, you only get half the story. Night is when the tension in the air is greatest, those uncomfortable, disquieting feelings that something has gone wrong with the world. I'm looking forward to the comeback, and I can say from going all over the city that it's already starting to bubble up.

Well, you know me, I've got a particular sense of humor, and times like these, we gotta laugh to keep from crying.

Thank you all.
