hello. above, some medium-format shots (taken with my diana+) for your friday morning.
i never know what i will get back when i take pics with this camera … i’m not crazy about all of these but they still make me smile.

i liked this feature on a new book about design, called ‘dark nostalgia’.

i have to run, but i think i’ll see you back here over the weekend.  i still have lots of photos to share from my travels!  i’m also going to do some book shopping this weekend, chili-tasting, and pizza-eating in brooklyn.  i hope yours is full of good stuff, too.

thanks for all of your nice comments this week!  cheers.

    your shots are so perfect, just capture exactly the portland mood. I’m a bit in awe of you, brian.

    I’m really enjoying all your pictures of Portland (my hometown). I keep sighing, and scrolling up and down, and sighing some more before calling my roommate over for a look.

    Thank you for posting.

    Also glad to learn of a cafe serving Courier. I received a bag via mail a little over a year ago, and I’ve been thinking about it ever since. I’ll definitely seek out Half & Half on my visit home next month.

    portland really is photogenic. clyde common and the ace are perfect (i personally love the roasted brussel sprouts). these photos remind me (for the millionth time) that i ‘m not sure why i don’t live in portland. thanks for sharing all these photos! and are you developing your slide film with regular processing?

    These shots are good. I usually get pretty bad surprises with my Diana. Miss Portland. Enjoying your string of posts.

    the photo of the coffee, sunglasses and book, on the table with long shadows has me in the midst of a poem. yes, that’s one of the things I do…write poems. when done i will send it along…you are a pretty interesting eater… to list all the different items you ate on your trip and what were the most satisfying?
    one of the things I love most about Portland is that each neighborhood is so unique, and people are incredibly friendly. You know, the Portland Jazz Festival is in February, around Valentines day, and is top notch. We usually go for a weekend and stay at a little hotel downtown.
    And, I used to live in Seattle, around Ravena, north of the U district. I am most fond of downtown, Ballard, Fremont, Capital Hill areas. There is a wonderful charcuterie and cheese shop, Delaurenti’s, downtown. Ok, enough reminiscing. Thanks for showing off your trip.
