Wednesday Walkabout

Wednesday evening was the perfect opportunity to take a 2 mile walk through the Reed College Campus and past the Eastmoreland Golf Course to Sellwood's weekly Farmer's Market. I made it home after a quick stop at my local Trader Joe's and decided that I should get out and enjoy the last of their "summer hours" before labor day weekend. After this, the market will close down at 7pm and soon that will mean sunset as well.

It took more will power than I'd care to admit to walk past Nectar Frozen Yogurt Lounge, but I will let you in on the little secret that I still stopped by to sample. "Excuse me ma'am, please limit yourself to only two sample cups per visit".. oops. They didn't actually say that.

The walk isn't too far but shouldn't be attempted in the wrong pair of shoes. Plenty of hills both ways make this a better run or drive than walk - especially when I'm lugging around my camera, three lenses and a 32 oz water bottle.

The prizes at the end and the adorably expensive neighborhood that I walk through make it all worth it.

Someday, maybe?

Sellwood is a buzzing neighborhood that is just far enough away from my house to feel like an adventure without much effort. Well, except for the 4 Mile round trip walk!

You have been taking some great pictures! Three lenses? You really went all out didn't you? What do you have?

Thank you! Two of the lenses came with the camera - the 18-55mm and the 55-250mm, then when I got back from Europe I went for the 50mm 1.8 aperture lens for fixed distance / portrait shots. I haven't spent enough time with that one yet!
