downtown collected











when in doubt, downtown. downtown is my happy place, my go-to inspiration place. didn't realize just how much until I began to pull images from all the downtown walks I've taken over the last the six months. downtown, again and again.

there's a song, you know. not that you'll find me singing it. I have, however, been known to hum it.

  2. Andrea, I worked in downtown Portland for three years and I recognize so many of these places. You manage to capture them with such beauty, it's amazing to me that it escaped me in the everyday.

  5. "When you're alone and life is making you lonely you can always go downtown"
    I also sometimes sing this song inside my head when I'm cheering myself up in the city

  12. These are amazing photos! Where did you take these? I know you said downtown, but where downtown?... Portland?
    I live in Oregon and I've been to Portland a couple of times, but I never saw anything as wonderful as these pictures.
    I LOVE looking at them! You have a talent!
