Street Photography - Pearl District
12-04-15 - Portland, Oregon
A few photos from a short walk I took in the Pearl District in Portland, OR a few days ago. Really I was just testing out a new lens (Sigma 35mm 1.4 Art!) but I thought the scene was cool enough to warrant it's own gallery. It's absolutely insane the amount of construction going on in the Pearl these days; considering when I first moved to this city a few years ago everything was in financial ruin and half completed condo towers stood vacant being sold for pennies on the dollar. Not anymore, today it seems the entire city is exploding with growth.
Here's a few photos from a short walk through some of the areas being built up:
^^ Still weird that this is the new norm ^^
