Portland has and always will be one of my favorite cities. When it’s not being overly pretentious or trying to be weird, it’s a lovely place to live.  Right now it’s also a place in turmoil.  The gentrification of this small city is bring some large changes. Beautiful old structures are being replaced by shinny new buildings and with the new comes the higher cost of living. Right now I’m seeing two social classes living with in feet of each other.  When I’m there, I find myself just capturing the city as I see it, knowing that it won’t be long before what I see now will just be a memory.  Change is coming and I’m fascinated to see where this journey takes Portland.
