interstate 5 through downtown portland


Posted on | Shot on at 21:29:20

The apartment I lived in throughout most of my time in Portland sat just along I-5, near Portland State University. If you’ve been through Portland you probably know that the interstate, as it runs through downtown, is in a kind of a concrete valley. This is shot through my living room window screen looking north towards the Pearl District along I-5.
