I had to kill a week in Portland when the new year turned from 2009 to 2010. Long story, short – I was waiting on a mechanic/metal artist to finish working on my van. I ended up falling in low level crush on the town of Portland. Every time I come here, the rain makes me a bit glum, but I always have trouble leaving. Perhaps that will change one day. It helped me to learn that you can still take photos on a rainy day.
