The Stone House (Witch's Castle) was built in 1936 during the Great Depression as a public restroom. Forest Park on Wildwood Trail to The Stone House (Witch's Castle), lower Macleay Park. Portland loves doughnuts. Pip's has these delicious bite-sized doughnuts with a variety of fillings. Nutella, to bacon, to honey, to PB&J. They also have at least 7 different homemade chai flavors. They know how to play with my heart. It's called the city of roses for a reason- Take a slow stroll (just before sunset) and enjoy the staggering number of beautiful roses. Powell's City of Books. That name says it all, huh?
Mt. Hood creeping through the clouds. One of many great places to get coffee in Portland. My favorite spot is in front of the window- a good vantage point for people watching on NW 23rd. It's also open about an hour longer than most coffeeshops around. Reliving some of the magnificent fall colors found at the Lan Su Classical Chinese Garden. This is the Scholar's Courtyard - my favorite. Stunning Japanese maples arch over a classic moon door.
The garden is a tranquil oasis set amidst the bustle of Old Town. A gem in the heart of the city.
#portland #oregon #lansu #chinese #garden #portlandia Often lost in the beauty is the daily struggle for survival. Here three Cormorants fight for a daily catch. A explanation. This picture is not upside down. Nor has this beautiful bird been shot. When taking pictures of this wonderful creature I realized why I am constantly amazed. It is turning to make a dive, head first into the water to catch a meal. This spot was only a short walk from our hotel, easy enough for this old guy to get to. @ Richard Remington. In my opinion this is the bird to practice on, taking pictures of diving birds. Act very similar to the Kingfisher. I also realized most of these birds have been banded. Life is surely amazing! Terns I want to explain this picture. Portland was a stop- over to our destination. This was simply close to our hotel. Always enjoy the journey, not simply the destination. I have never seen such beauty in wildlife. Terns. I can't figure out how to get this posted to Portland, Maine not Portland, Oregon. Excuse my mis- information. #troveon This is my Best waffles in Portland. There is no question.
Get two waffles to share- one sweet and one savory. That way you don't have to pick between bacon and Brie and blackberries, because I don't know that I'd ever be able to. Chicken and waffles with green tomato syrup (likely the most unique and delicious syrup ever). Others at the table had amazing beef brisket, lavender French toast, and crab eggs benedict. Come with a big group to try a little bit of everything! After a drizzle, the sun shone and illuminated the leaves on the path I was troving on. #takeahike Best BLT I've ever had. Served on a croissant along with a fried egg, avocado and basil aioli. The rest of the menu was equally tempting. Small chain with four Oregon locations - would love to see one up here in Seattle! A rainy evening on the Portland riverfront. A very romantic destination. Multnomah Falls, Oregon has been on my list to visit for many years. The waterfall did not disappoint! This pic was taken April 2017. Kaffir Lime Leaf and Lemongrass ice cream with Fish Sauce caramel swirl! Surprisingly delicious!
Wonderful homemade ice cream in a variety of mostly unique flavors. Other choices this week: Strawberry Honey Balsamic with Black Pepper, Chevre with Marionberry Habanero Jam, Sweet Summer Corn Buttermilk Sherbet, and Citra Hops and Apricot. This is going to be a regular stop for us every time we visit Portland! Walking along the Eastbank Esplanade in Portland is the perfect spot from which to shoot the skyline (or to just enjoy the view, but I can't stand there and NOT shoot something when the sunset is like this!). I'm a fan of skylines, bridges and rivers - 3 of my favorite things to shoot. But when I get them all in the same shot, well that's just pure awesomeness! From best tasting doughnuts I've ever had... maple bacon YUM!! Waking up to a beautiful morning sunrise on the riverfront is always a nice surprise. This church was founded in 1889, and is the oldest Catholic diocese in Portland (the details of which can be found on the web site).
I drive by the church every day, though it is a little hard to see it through the freeway overpass. Some of my first photos on Trover were of this structure. It's really a gem, but you'll have to get here before 2pm on a weekday if you want to look inside. That is the kind of discovery you can't hope to make at 1:57 pm and still get there in time.
Well, that will give me something to do the next time I come by. Fantastic hotel in downtown Portland, with large suites, friendly staff, and a free happy hour with wine and beer each evening. The hotel is also pet friendly! This one is the most authentic Japanese Garden outside Japan. Portland had the most authentic Japanese Garden outside Japan. This Japanese Tea House was built in Japan and reconstructed here. Cross back across the Willamette River along the pedestrian walk below the Steel Bridge to the East side Esplanade. A replica of a Japanese home at the Japanese Garden in Portland. #architecture #roadtrip Beautiful boutique hotel filled with great art. Awesome breakfast spot too. The entrance to the vestibule.
Six years ago, I fumbled around on a Lumix GF4 with a pancake lens and never did this part of the church justice.
Today, I've managed to put something together that closely resembles the original. The distortion you see is not from a fisheye lens but from the combination of 26 individual photos composed and blended as one.
There's a learning curve, folks, and you have to be prepared for an enormous amount of frustration. But if I can do it, anyone can. About 30 minutes east of Portland on Hwy 84 are a number of waterfalls, none more visible or famous than Multnomah. Hardly hidden but a gem nonetheless. A small park in the heart of Portland and worth a quick stroll. Great place for people watching as well. I've found my favorite building in Portland... Wonderful French pastry shop and cafe. Had a tasty lunch here on a warm afternoon - the wall facing the sidewalk folds away so the entire shop becomes an open-air cafe. Don't miss the BLT sandwich. Another moody shot from the Steel Bridge. The Broadway and Fremont Bridges can be seen spanning the Willamette River in the distance.
#portland #oregon #willamette #river #bridges #portlandia Custom ice cream sandwiches made to order! Sunrise from the upper tram terminal at Oregon Health Science University. Timing is everything in photography. I have waited a year to get the right timing and weather for this shot. For those fortunate enough to ride the tram daily this is a common sight. Mount Hood in the background. Suave and sophisticated Parisian destination in Portland, Pix has delicate tarts, an elaborate sherry list, and adventurous truffles (can you say bleu cheese chocolate?) Also good for #vegan and #glutenfree eaters! White birch over Marquam Shelter. Great thin crust pizza here. The bacon nectarine salad was awesome too. We had about a 30 min wait for 2 on Sat eve. Worth it. Koi pond on a very rainy day in portland Communal tables, set menu, open kitchen, every morsel creatively conceived, beautifully presented, and delicious. Great city. Loveliness abounds at Lan Su Chinese Garden in the heart of the city! Step inside this one block oasis in Chinatown for a fresh perspective. #LoveMyTown Miniature elephant riding XL camel in the park just down the street from Powell's City of Books. Beautiful beach! Tucked in China Town, Lan Su Chinese Gardens is a nice place to relax. There is also a Tea House located inside. USS Blueback at night. Oregon Museum of Science and Industry. Absolutely the best place to photograph the Portland skyline and Tillamook Crossing.. Accessible 24 hours a day. View of downtown Portland from the Eastbank Esplanade.
#Oregon #Portland #skyline #waterfrontpark #Willametteriver #eastbankesplanade
Rain or shine Explore the alley beside Voodoo Doughnut for a pleasant summer evening of dining and conversation. Just across the street from Powell's Books is the McMenamins Crystal Ballroom and Hotel. The McMenamin brothers have made it their life mission to save historic structures and turn them into unique restaurants and hotels. Stop here for handcrafted local brews and food. Rose gardens PBJ'S Grilled Peanut Better and Jelly Sandwiches in the Nob Hill Neighborhood of Portland, OR is THE best cart-repenurial venture anyone could've done! Ingredients from local Pacific Northwest farmers, PBJ'S makes the best gourmet PBJ grilled sandwiches! I had the cream of the crop: PBJ, bananas, and organic cream cheese!!! Gosh darnit, I've made myself hungry again! GO if your there in the PDX. Oh the owners are friendly and helpful, but did I say that their sandwiches are good or what?!? #TroveOn Donut cheeseburger sliders. Sounds sketchy but totally delicious. And this place is awesome if you kids b/c they specialize in shakes and serve Ike's Vietnamese Fish Sauce Wings
Chicken wings marinated in fish sauce and sugar, deep fried, tossed in caramelized Phu Quoo fish sauce. Served with Vietnamese table salad. #delicious China town, Portland Oregon.. Tillikum Crossing, the The train station in Portland is really beautiful. The newly renovated historic Hollywood Theatre. Great place to see a classic movie in Portland. Tilikum Crossing, Bridge of the People is a cable-stayed bridge across the Willamette River in #Portland, #Oregon #stunningstructures #TilikumCrossing Powell's Books is a Portland icon. You can't say you have visited Portland unless you have visited world famous Powell's Books. Plan on 1-2 hours minimum...Yep, it's that big! A black & white study of the oldest fountain in Portland, in the rain. Sculpted by Olin Warner, two bronze female figures hold up a dish at the intersection of what were once five streets in Old Town. The statue is adjacent to several of the remaining cast iron buildings in the city.
#portland #oregon #black&white #portlandia One of the swankiest parts of town, that is, everything north of Burnside Avenue and west of 10th street. Here you'll find what is arguably the best shopping -- all along NW 23rd street; the best brewpubs, fine restaurants, the largest independent bookstore in the world -- Powell's City of Books; a vast and undeveloped swath of preserved land with one of the longest forested trails in any city in the world -- Forest Park's Wildwood Trail; and, unfortunately, a wild dose of disappointment when you discover that your wallet may not have the muscle to keep up with it all.
Fortunately, taking pictures is free. And this part of town is perfect for that, with its stately old buildings, brightly colored and renovated vintage housing, and elegantly designed new structures that will make you blink in wonder.
Oh, and this is where you'll also find the city's biggest rose gardens, its Audubon nature preserve, the Pittock Mansion, a Japanese Garden, a first-class children's museum, and the zoo.
There's plenty to do in the other districts in town, but a visitor can't be blamed for thinking that a lot of the best stuff all found its way to one place. As if one day a giant with nothing better to do, decided to pick up the city by its eastern end and roll all the good things into one lucky corner.
If you visit the city, you can't pass it up. The most authentic Japanese garden outside Japan. 'Allow Me' also known as the Umbrella Man is an iconic bronze sculpture located at The Pioneer Courthouse Square. It is a popular tourist destination and a local landmark which serves as a reference point of gatherings and political rallies.The Umbrella Man has been called the 'most photographed man' in the city of Portland and serves as a symbol of the city and residents of Portland. Untouched PDX weirdness! The hipster transplants have yet to taint it this genuine Portland establishment. I have been coming to this late night cafe for 15 years and still love it. Located in an unmarked house in a nondescript part of town Rimsky-Korsakoffee is my best kept secret. Open 7pm-1am, accepting only cash/cheque, the desserts (Rasputin's Vice is a must!) live music, The line is always long so we got our doughnuts elsewhere but this place is iconic, that's for sure! #Portland Portland is a small city but huge in character. Beautiful and authentic Chinese Garden, and a great respite from a day walking around town. Architected to feel much larger than it's one-square block footprint. Don't forget to stop for tea and snacks at the Tea House. Home-made doughnuts in bizarre flavors, like Fruit Loops or Cocoa Krispies. The best, though, is their bacon-maple bar. Worth the wait, open (very) late. Portland, Oregon is routinely ranked among the best transit cities in the country. The accolades certainly are deserved. Commuters are swept quickly and comfortably from almost anywhere to almost anywhere on a system that is reliable, convenient and bicycle friendly. It should be a model for other cities. (from
I gotta agree with this as I wish that Seattle had taken up and adopted a mass transit system. The PDX definitely was commuter friendly, which made for better travel and commute for more tourists and locals, which made for an economy that seems to fair well as far as its shopping and food industry. Chinatown gate. If you ever make it to Portland, make sure you get samplers of beer and cider. I recommend the ginger cider- I still can't find it in Miami so get a bunch of bottles to take home. #roadtrip #Delicious Dry Zen garden I know the temptation is always to say: where was stuff like this when I was a kid? But seriously. Where in the heck was it? Affogato made with salted caramel gelato. I had to get a second one. Pub food and a nitro stout The Portland skyline on a crisp clear winter night. The Eastbank Esplanade is an ideal stroll the see this beautiful city at any hour of the day.
#Oregon #Portland #skyline #night #Eastbankesplanade Another tranquil spot at the Portland Japanese Garden.
Here, a waterfall spills down the hillside into a koi-filled pond. It is ringed by beautiful water irises in Spring. Oh yeah!! #foodiefinds Super flavorful Thai in a tiny neighborhood spot. Moo Satay and the fried morning glories were top items. May I just say I think I found my true love!!!! Wiz bang bar has my heart for sure, hands down the best ice cream I’ve ever tasted😍😍. #SweetSpot The world's only coin-operated house of Elvis-worship. Weddings and/or psychoanalysis performed for $0.25. Cool and tacky and strange. Nicholas is one of my favorite places in Portland. Incredible Lebanese food! And this is the Korean Tacos. Yum.
I seriously cannot stop craving these delicious Korean BBQ Tacos. I've never had anything like them and am afraid I never will again.
No trip to Portland is complete without a food truck experience, and Korean Twist should be your first stop. Walking along the beach in Oregon! The water was so shallow that it caused a gorgeous reflection. Best coffee in NYC (this was at the Portland branch!) Morning rain looking like tiny christmas lights on the tree branches in the morning #goldenhour at the Pittock mansion above downtown Portland. Cha Ca #chinese #garden #Portland #Oregon #trees Yum beer! Lots of great choices here, from Bumbleberry (blueberry) to Goggle Fogger (grapefruit) to Hop Juju (IPA) and more! They serve food too. Happy Lantern Festival from Lan Su Chinese Garden!
#portland #oregon #chinesenewyear This city is a little gritty & a lot hipster. Bubble Tea for the win on an early PNW spring afternoon.

#teatime #tea #teabar #portland #oregon #pdx #pnw #springfun While queueing at Voodoo Doughnuts. Random crap! Here is a street performer from Portland Oregon's famous Saturday Market. From March 2 - Mid-December...every Saturday...there are artists of every genre selling, performing, and creating art. It's a beautiful thing with break dancers like this dude to glass blowers to photographers showing their work. Whenever I am in the PDX, I make it to this market. Also on Sundays is the Farmers Market.
