Let there be light

I did a little window shopping in NW Portland recently and discovered two very illuminating shops – both on NW Glisan Street coincidentally. Hive sticks out like a little box of store but the lighting attracts the eye. The window display reminded me of an old, old Woody Allen movie. Sleeper I think. The futuristic movie he made - futuristic in that mod 60s sort of way. Know what I mean?

Traveling a little farther up Glisan I encountered Lux lighting. Lux’s lights sparkle like diamonds and it’s especially pretty at night, Check these two shops out next time you’re in the Pearl.

Chris: Thanks for the comment on my blog. Your work is great! We seem to have the same taste for photos. I checked out your flickr page too. It's almost freaky... I do a lot of volunteer work for habitat for humanity and I know several of the families you have photographed. It's a small world isn't it?
