Hello my G+ Friends!
It's been awhile since I've mentioned it, and wanted to remind all that we are having the America by Rail Photowalk
with +Cassius Wright
and +Jordana Wright
! Let's show Cassius and Jordana how wonderfully hospitable we are here in Portland!
Saturday, June 2nd!
Meet @ Pioneer Square.
End @ 6pm @ Le Bistro Montage ~ 301 SE Morrison Street
Rain or Shine.
We are going to begin this epic walk in our own wonderful 'living room' of Pioneer Square! Please see map for general route information ~ http://g.co/maps/t3eev
Once we collect ourselves we will head towards SW Park Ave. to capture some urban/green/parkspace shots as we migrate south towards Portland State Uni. The park should offer up some wonderful opportunities for People/Portrait/Architecture shots and whatever else y'all come up with while walking!
We then head down bustling SW 6th Ave. transit corridor for some more core-downtown shots (bring your tripods and dark glass for some long exposures :) Then we head through the former occupy encampment area that has just recently been reopened to the public, before heading over the Hawthorne Bridge.
Exiting the Hawthorne Bridge will place us right in the East-Side Industrial District, and then we head towards MLK (either on the elevated Hawthrone or below) before meandering back to the Esplanade for some downtown/river shots.
We then head for food and drinks @ ~ Le Bistro Montage ~ they do not take reservations, but are expecting our group. They also have a bar if there is a wait for seating, or if you'd prefer to get a drink and mingle with other walkers...
This walk is rain or shine folks, come prepared!
This IS a pet friendly and family friendly event.
(No pets in Montage though...)
Parking can be obtained at many parking decks in the downtown core. I'd personally recommend taking free transit to the square or parking at the end and walking to the start.
