Welcome, Wanderers
Excerpts from my Alaska to Oregon, photo gear, and public transit pages follow.
In 2000, I began commuting year-round by bicycle to my workplace in downtown Portland. My round trip ride was 10 miles.
In 2010, when I began working at a new job, I began walking year-round to my new workplace. My round trip walk was 5 miles.
At the slower pace, I was able to photograph the sights I saw throughout the seasons along my varied walk routes.
My work walks soon led to extended weekend walks and thousands of miles and photos of sights I saw along the way.
For many years, I posted photos from my walks on social media as @WalksInPortland and later as @PNWPhotoWalks.
I am now trying to be more social in real life, so I am primarily posting photos here and on my Flickr.
I enjoy Flickr now that it is now stable, performs well, and does not compromise photos. Plus, unlike Facebook and Instagram, I get to keep my data. 
All of the photos from my walks from 2017 to 2020 are posted here. I am slowly adding photos from 2010 to 2016. I have many.
I do not geotag my photos or capture personally identifiable information. But I do post signs and signposts for general orientation.
Since 2010, when needed, I have been able to take public transit to/from all but two of my walks in the Portland metro region.
Please drop me a note if you have any comments, questions, or requests.
If our paths have not crossed yet, either in real life or online, perhaps they will in the future.
Thank you!
