Portland in Black and White, part 2

I thought I’d share more photos from my day spent in downtown Portland. I posted some photos a couple of weeks ago of the start of the day and riding public transportation. After I got downtown I went to breakfast at Elephant’s Deli and then walked the streets taking photos at whatever struck my fancy. I also took time to sit and people watch. On these days spent downtown I clock about 9 miles of walking so by the time I get back on MAX to go home I am exhausted, but in a good way. My camera gear gets heavier and heavier as the day goes on and I really need to make myself choose just one camera for the day….but how?
