PIONEER PARK FRIENDS



About a month ago I visited Pioneer Park, a large community place,  located in the center of Portland, Oregon. I took lots of photographs in the park that day. Today's photos are part of that collection. These two gentlemen graciously allowed me to to take their photos as they were sitting and chatting with each other -- enjoying the day. 



They told me they were originally from different states-- Arkansas and Florida. Now both are residents of Portland. They both seemed to agree that it was a very friendly and convenient place to live even though Portland is major large city. I agreed with them -- myself finding it a very lively and friendly city.

  1. Very fine portraits, Barbara. I think you caught something very authentic about these 2 men. I'm happy for you that you live in a lively & friendly city...That makes a difference for me, a place where people are happy that they are living there. I'd always heard that about Portland Oregon.

    1. Rita -- I was intrigued with their faces. Faces and eyes seem to tell the fortunes of the folks that wear them. I plan on doing more faces in the future -- and hopefully can get taking faces down to a meaningful shot. thanks for your nice comment -- barbara
