12th and Stark, Portland

Posted on | Shot on at 12:12:54

12th Avenue and Stark Street. A diverse corner. Juxtaposing a former gay club (not sure what’s there now), Jake’s Famous Crawfish, the Kent hotel and a rundown-looking little bodega a block from Whole Foods and Spartacus Leathers and Ringler’s Annex pub and Powell’s Books.
