Portland Nights

I didn't even trespass once while shooting these.

Nonetheless, I had a small run-in with the police after taking a picture of the front of a convenience store (below). I think the combination of a hood and tripod was a little too scary for a Cumberland Ave neighbor who alerted the authorities of my questionable activities.

After convincing two officers (one arrived as back-up just after the first) that my motives were benign I continued my wanderings but soon realized I was being tailed; it took them about an hour to lose interest in me.

Great shots! People generally do not take to kindly to picture takers in this town.

I sort of wish I'd received a late night phone call... "Bronwen, this is Rob. I need to get bailed out". I'm glad to finally see your blog, it looks great.
