If you were wondering where I was last week, my brother, Alan, came up from Chico, CA to visit us here in Portland for Spring Break. I hadn’t seen him in 2 years, so my e-responsibilities came to a halt while we gorged on food, drank tons of coffee and walked everywhere. I also took a gazillion portraits of him, though he has absolutely zero game in front of the camera. Well, that’s my geeky brother, for ya. :)
We took Al to every quadrant of town where he got the true Portland experience — it rained, snowed and on his last day in town the sun warmed us up to a whopping 60 degrees. We took advantage of the good weather in Cathedral Park, where we met up with John Carleton for a little photo walk across the St. John’s Bridge.
Somehow, in between all that, we managed to just chill out and enjoy some QT together.
Many thanks to everyone who helped Alan feel welcome in this grand city of ours. Hopefully he won’t wait another 2 years before coming back up for a visit. :)
If you’re curious, the PB&J Soda and Leninade can be purchased at my new favorite store, Fizz.
dang, I forgot about these photos; I am one handsome dude!
[…] Saturday that my brother went home to California was supposed to be the day that I blew his mind with all the weekend brunch […]
damn girl, all these stitched photos… that’s a lot of work! but worth it.
also, can i say how envious i am of your ability to keep your blog layout so fresh and evolving? i always want to tweak mine but i have no skillz. womp womp.
These are all so insanely gorgeous! Why you gotta be so good???
Kim, SO GLAD you got to spend time together, and I think Alan has plenty of game in front of the camera. I like so many of these, but number 17, BE STILL MY BEATING HEART, that photograph is BEAUTIFUL. It should be on your WALL. =)
LOVE this series. So glad you guys got the chance to spend some QT! I’d say he’s got model game in a Warhol/Woody Allen way. ;) That shot with the lens flare right at high eye/glasses should be his profile pic for, like, ever. I’d totally travel to Portland just to get my portrait done by you!
Aw, thank you Trude! That is so sweet of you to say. If you ever do make it up here for a visit there would be no question of a photo hang out!
Propagandhi tee! NICE!
