Hawthorne Bridge in Portland, OR at 3am. The story behind this shot goes something like this:
I went out to a hip hop show downtown and met a guy that’s been around the Portland scene for awhile, as bar close was approaching they invited me out to Salmon Street Studio to continue the party.
Long story short, after an hour or so of partying and meeting new people, I figured it was about time to walk back to my place and took the Hawthorne Bridge — which was fairly empty at that point in the night. I decided it would be fun to lay down in the middle of the bridge and drunkenly snapped this shot while I was chilling out. Turned out to be a pretty awesome shot and a great night overall.
Honestly, I just really like the way the colors and composition turned out on this one. If you look close enough you can see 3 guys fishing at the end of the dock and another pushing a stroller on the other side.
My Droid X finally kicked it and no longer starts up. It lasted 6+ months with a broken screen and whack battery though, so that’s pretty good. In the meantime I got my self an OG Droid which has a much slower processor, weaker camera and crashes my applications all the time — but I still managed to grab this picture.
So now I’m looking to upgrade to something brand new hella soon here as there are a bunch of new phones coming out. Right now it’s looking like I might wait until the iPhone 5 releases but there are a few Android devices I like, too.
I moved to Portland, Oregon. I like it a lot more than California and there are amazing places like this all around. Kind of reminds me of back home in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan a little bit. Check out the full-sized view to see some cool details. Edited in Photoshop with the Topaz suite.
