Walking Around Southeast Portland

 Portland is a great place for walking. One of my favorite things to do is walk through different Portland neighborhoods and look at the houses.  The Walking Around Portland  series will be made up of the photos I take on these walks.2013 09 02 13.25.47 300x225 Walking Around Southeast Portland

There are a lot of craftsman details added to Portland porches.  This is a different style than I’ve seen before.

I love that the Tibetan prayer flags.  They are so well matched to the rest of the house!

One thing I noticed when I moved from Colorado to Portland is that people tend to use a lot more color here! I like bold color choices!

Rusty metal often looks cool when done right.

I was able to chat with the owner of this place a bit. He’s been using salvage materials to add to the house for years. There are tons of little details everywhere. I could look at this place for a long time. It’s awesome what people do with reused materials in Portland!

Bike… bike rack. This way your bike won’t be lonely while you’re gone.
