I give you Portland, everyone, the greenest and cleanest city with the most coffee drinkers, book readers, bicyclists, breweries and hipsters. These photos were taken from Pioneer Square, which is the city center. It's a big area made up of brick that is used for news castings, meeting spots, and obviously blog photos. These were from the first day that I was downtown and I was so unbelievably happy to be back in my hometown. I had forgotten how unique of a city Portland is, from the people to the places to the weather, which was way too cold for my LA-adusted body.
Mostly I spent the day soaking in the city and shopping in my all black ensemble, perfect for the gloomy, foggy Portland weather that I had forgotten about. It was amazing to be back in the City of Roses.
