waterfront, christmas morning


I’m a bit surprised by the turns and twists of the back half of this year. I really had imagined that I would remain in a much sadder place this Christmas, but that hasn’t been the case. And this morning, as I headed home, the clouds cleared, and the Willamette was more beautiful than I had seen it in a while. I just had to stop and shoot.

Like many of the shots I’ve taken over the past couple of months, this one feels like a placeholder, but it is a marker for the joy and happiness I have in my life on this day.

Life is crazy and beautiful; for now, that’s all I will say about it. More to come, for sure.

where is this?

This was taken with a new camera, the Sony a7r — more on this later as well…

  1. That’s a great view. The few times I’ve been down to pdx, I’ve wanted to shoot that bridge somehow, from some angle, but haven’t taken or been able to take the time to stop and explore.

    Here’s to more “crazy & beautiful!”

  2. As beautiful as the picture is my brother, I am happier that you are finding beauty in the world around you. Know that you are loved by many, even those you don’t see often.

    Be well. I’ll call you soon.
