Posted on | Shot on at 18:00:00

Pioneer Courthouse in downtown Portland, directly across the street from the famous Pioneer Courthouse Square. I shot this from the far side of the Square near Starbuck’s.

  • The lighting is so special in this and the deserted look actually gives a feel of heights of cleanliness.

  • i like how quiet and deserted the street is.. very nice low light shot.. :)

  • somehow you’ve made it feel very much like Switzerland – distinguished, aged, calm.

  • This ight shot is a pretty one%u2026 And I like the composition too
