Cycling through Portland’s autumn light

This year I decided to enjoy autumn.

I appreciate all the other seasons, but I’ve been rudely treating autumn like a red headed stepchild because it led to winter. Winter’s not so bad in Portland; the rain is lovely, but I dread the two days of ice a year, and I would rather have longer days. Whatever, enough chatter about the weather.

It’s a pleasure to ride a bike during Autumn’s cooler mornings and the mild afternoons. This week I pulled over to the curb and took a few photos in the gorgeous light (all iPhone 6s).
