Sekkle,

Hey buddy! I see some photos I commented on flickr now! Really, there is so many amazing photos I can't really comment particularily on the photos as a whole.

One thing I liked how you stylishly used contrast with architecture, colour, people, etc. Very nice!

You sure seemed to hit a bunch of different areas and very nicely! You seem to use your telephoto lense well LOL, very nice work with the focusing and blurring.

You are a very talented photographer and did some interesting shots! It just looks so interesting. Your photographs of PDX should act as a tourist guide, they will just lure people into the city. Are you a photographer as a profession cause it sure looks like it ! You make portland look vibrant!!

ps - where is this??
