I’ve been a little busy lately but I did have some time to take some levitation photos at Kerry Park. I’m really starting to like this style of photography. It’s simple but also makes a big impact.
Portland is Happening Now
Around this time last year I went on an a epic adventure through Portland, Oregon courtesy of Travel Portland and the “Portland is Happening Now” campaign. The “Portland is Happening Now” campaign highlights tourism to Portland during the winter months.
This year Travel Portland is not only highlighting great deals around the Portland area, they’re also partnering with the Base Camp Brewing company. 10 Portland breweries have paired up to create 10 different #PDXNOW brews. Kind of a random fact but did you know Portland currently has the most breweries of any city in the world? It surprised me when I found out. Travel Portland sent me one of their beers (Bridge Builder) to try. I’m interested to see what it taste like. Bottoms up!
Random photos of San Francisco
Here’s a set of random San Francisco photo experiences. For now it’s back to Seattle. Until next time San Francisco.
Menswear: Recess Wallet
While in San Francisco I met up with the good people at Recess. Recess gave me two of their ultra thin wallets for review. I found out these wallets to be perfect for traveling and very high quality. I especially like the color selections and softness.
These high end wallets are typically priced at 180$ to 96$ but the code “asmith” will get you 20% percent off.
I really like going to San Francisco. In many ways the city really reminds Seattle but in other ways it’s very different. One of my favorite things about SF is that it’s so multicultural. So many many people packed into a small area. Perfect place for a quick trip!
EATING ABROAD:TIRANA, ALBANIA
Eating in Albania was interesting. The cuisine is a mixture of different cultures including Italian and Turkish foods. Here’s a video of one experience while eating in Tirana, Albania. For images of my experience check here.
Here’s a collection of photo experiences I have not posted yet. I feel so blessed to have the opportunity to see great such great things around the world. I can’t wait to see what this year is going to bring. I’m planning some good trips this year so stay tuned!
Olympus M.Zuiko 75mm f/1.8 lens
Every year it seems like I add another lens to my Olympus OM-D e-m5 arsenal. This year purchased the Olympus M.Zuiko 75mm f/1.8 lens. I’m really excited about this new toy because it captures exceptional images and it’s ultra quite when recording video. The only draw back to this lens is the price because it’s not cheap. For a mirco 4/3 camera it’s pretty expensive but if you can afford it, I say treat yo’self!
Winter Style Inspiration
Wool Top Coat/ Banana Republic Wool Sweater/ H&M Jean Shirt/ H&M
I’m glad I got a chance to be out in the snow. For some reason it doesn’t feel like winter has truly started until I experience heavy snow fall. Seeing all this snow reminds me of fun times growing up in Detroit. Great times!
