I've been dreaming of Portland lately. I used to live part-time in this amazing city when working as a playwright and actor. And when I wasn't living there, I'd hop the train down from Seattle, visit friends, and get my groove back. I love this city. It was therefore, with great joy and nostalgia that I found these wonderful photos of Portland life by Lauren Nelson over at The Urban Hippie. Her work is full of rich texture with and eye for beauty in the mundane. I was immediately entranced. Enjoy!
