pdx/sea, no. 2
isn’t portland photogenic? i thought so.
some stuff pictured above that i really liked…
+ the international rose garden at dusk
+ spending a hot afternoon browsing at powell’s books (this place is a bit overwhelming)
+ pastaworks! (what a market…)
+ visiting beckel canvas, the place where eena bags are made
+ the greens in portland seemed to be deeper and darker than what i’m used to … it might be that pacific NW light
+ the old cars parked everywhere in portland neighborhoods (i have so many photos of these and can’t wait to share them all – by far one of my favorite things about portland)
+ so many good breakfast spots (my favorite meal), and a great beer bar downtown
also, i know that some of you were wondering about how i process slide film. well, i’m not an expert here so if you have more info, please feel free to leave a comment and share. but i have it processed along with my negatives – it’s developed using a different process (E-6, vs C-41 for regular negatives). and then the slides are scanned onto a CD for me (i don’t have a scanner yet myself). it’s really no different than negatives as far as developing goes. the main difference that i notice is that you need to be more careful when you shoot with it (it’s less forgiving with regard to exposure). also, you can cross-process slide film with some really great results. hope that helps!
i’m having fun re-living my trip with these photos … thanks for joining me. see you back here for more tomorrow.
