Complicated Portland

Growing up in Oregon, Portland felt like the place that culture came from. My father worked for a stained glass studio up there, and through his community of artists and crafters I got to glimpse the deep well of creativity that thrives in the heart of the city. Driving in to the city, my eyes would fill with awe admiring the scale of the architecture. But riding through the streets, it was clear that the real star of the show was the people and what they do with the spaces in between the buildings.
