Portland Neon Redux

During a 2008 trip to Portland, I edited a video-celebration of the city's gorgeous assemblage of neon signs. The piece turned out OK, but I regretted not bringing a higher resolution camera to grab the footage. Ever since that trip, I'd awaited the opportunity to return to the Rose City and revisit those old haunts.

At last we made the return trip!

Some highlights - the Republic Cafe, Tip Top Cleaners, Holiday Motel, Billy Rays Dive Tavern, and Mt. Tabor Theater - no longer glow (at least not when we visited them during our four-day journey), but Jenny and I found some new places that give renewed hope that Portland loves its neon landscape.

Tampere, Finland Street Art

During my 2015 return to Finland, I took a weekend trip to Tampere - where I found an awesome collection of street art in an abandoned match factory.

Kiev Street Art

During my 2015 trip to Chernobyl and Pripyat, Kiev served as my Ukrainian base of operations, which afforded me an opportunity to explore some cool street art.

One of the highlights of our 2015 visit to Morocco was the chance to experience a sliver of the Casablanca street art scene.
