Portland (and surrounding areas)

I moved to Portland this past April and love this freaking city to death already.
Hope you enjoy my photos! I'll update it regularly over time but for now we'll just keep the thread short and sweet.

View from my apartment:

South Waterfront can be seen past the freeway along with the OHSU Aerial Tram:

Thank you. And yes, it's one of the best for sure. The only other city I've lived in that rivals it is Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Yes, it is. Portland, to me, is and should be the role model for American cities.

Great pictures, Mark. You have good view of PSU from your apartment. Hell, maybe in a year, we'll be neighbors if I end up at The Broadway or Ondine. Keep up the photographic excellence.
