Oh, how we love photogenic places! Some places are stunningly beautiful. Santorini fits that category – as you can see from our friend, Cliff’s, blog post. Other places are quirky and just filled with life. That would be Portland. Either type of place, you just have to have your camera at the ready to get the picture. It’s hard to miss out.
Right around the corner we saw an unusual sight. What is “RIP CITY” and what’s the special occasion?
“RIP CITY” is a basketball nickname for Portland, Oregon. The bridal party, in their high top Converse shoes, carried out the sports theme with beauty and plenty of Portland style.
Nearby the city was in the process of replacing old-style street lamps in a neighborhood of more contemporary architecture. The “old” and “new” carried on the previous wedding theme.
We just had to admire the detail on this wonderfully painted building…
..and only a few blocks away the metal “bikers” on the roof are ready to soar off into thin air.
We passed the caution sign and came back for a second look. We reread the sign and, hey, OK, we’ll be careful!
Not every place is quite so photogenic as beautiful Santorini and quirky Portland. Sure, we love to capture images everywhere we go, but some places are just so much easier to get the picture than others.
