Portlandia



Since I have not been out photo taking for a few weeks and have nothing new to blog, I think I will post a series of Portland from my archives for the next few days. :)



From Wikipedia: 'Portlandia' is a sculpture by Raymond Kaskey located above the entrance of Michael Graves' Portland Building in downtown Portland, Oregon at 1120 SW 5th Avenue. It is the second-largest copper repoussé statue in the United States, after the Statue of Liberty. The statue itself is 34 feet, 10 inches high.

Well that's a perfect choice for the letter P. That statue is simply huge.

Portland is a great city, I really love it. But it's so big and sprawling that I get lost every time I am down there!
