Buildings in Oregon

If you have been able to visit our exhibit in Hood River over the past week, we hope you spent a few minutes watching images scroll by on a video monitor in the lobby. The monitor features an image from each and every photographer who participated in the project. Below is a sample of images included around the theme of buildings.

Perspective - From Below

Oregonians have a unique way of looking at the world. In general, we're friendly, open-minded and creative. To celebrate our perspective in life, today we're sharing a few photos that take advantage of a unique perspective on their subjects.

It's a long climb up the rope ladder as Columbia river pilot Tim Harris heads for the gangway rigged on the side of the container ship Hanjin Haiphong. Deckhand Dustin Everson of the pilot launch Connor Foss keeps an eye on Harris as the transfer takes place. Harris will relieve a Columbia River Bar pilot who brought the ship in from the ocean.
