A couple of weeks ago when I was wandering around Portland with my sister we were on our way to the bus stop and I veered off to take this picture. I think it took me 5 solid minutes to compose it just so and of course – we missed our bus. But the more I look at it, the more I love it and I’m so glad I took the time to frame it up exactly the way I wanted. There’s so much going on here. The lines, the colors, the triangles, the shadows, the way the tree and the car fit so cozily in their spaces. If there’s any takeaway here it’s take your time, get the shot. Who cares how long it might be?
