exploring portland

Last month I agreed to go on a missive mission of sorts. Through Twitter, I connected with a lady who sent me a postcard of an old UFO museum in Portland. She asked that I go check out the area, find out if it’s still there and report back. I need a good excuse to leave my apartment so I was quick to agree. The area is just blocks from my apartment so I took the opportunity to take a walk around Portland with my boyfriend. I think we walked about 5 miles total! It was pretty crazy and my hips hurt so bad by the time we got home. Totally worth it to shoot a roll of film!

This sign is where the UFO museum used to be. It’s now some sort of youth center that I don’t even believe is named Ace Apts. It’s a pretty neat sign though, huh?

The buildings in this city are so good. I have to stop myself from taking a picture of every building I come across.

Downtown! Well, kind of. Part of it! I wish we had cloudy days again.

I don’t know if there is anything better than trees blooming. I wish they would look like that all the time!

I absolutely love bay windows! Every detail on this building is so spot on.

I also really love doors that aren’t common colors. Especially when the rest of the building and surrounding area is so drab.

The train station is so photogenic. I will never forget my first visit to Portland, arriving by train at Union Station. Seeing the station always brings back those memories. I had just turned 18; my mom bought me and my ex train tickets to see the city. Ever since that trip, I longed to live in Portland. Now I do and it’s pretty awesome.
