Coava Coffee has a beautiful coffee bar and a really unique way of making coffee. Those look like regular Chemex coffee brewers, but they use Able laser etched stainless filters instead of the usual paper filters. It produces a much different cup that you just have to experience. More oils, more fines and a complex taste that grows as you finish the cup.

I'm not sure this could get any more straightforward. My wife Emily is beautiful, but it's not often she lets me take her picture. It's even crazier that she let me with a full lighting setup as well.
Give me a Word... I'll Give You a Poem
I met Jeremy on SE Hawthorne last week under an overhang outside of a local gift shop. I could hear the clickity clack of the keys and the rhythmic carriage return from a few doors down. Cold was the word and here is the poem.
I love that this type of light shows up so early in the afternoon this time of year.
The kids and I hiked up past the upper observatory deck of Multnomah Falls to see the two waterfalls that most visitors never see. Dutchman falls is a smaller cascade over a mound of basalt chunks and then a gentle pour from the pull beneath. There's been a log in front of the falls for a couple years now, but hey, that's nature.
There's nothing quite like the view through a Hasselblad viewfinder. The kids and I took turns framing things up. I'll share those shots when I get them developed.
The trail continues to wind up into the forest, but not before a beautiful view of Weisendanger Falls. There are a bunch of logs to climb if you want to get right up near the falls, but it's pretty easy even for my 7 year old. Weisendanger can fluctuate quite a bit, and this photo shows it at a particularly light flow. I'm looking forward to coming back once the rains start up again and we get more snow pack.
Yeah, we have a Hollywood Theater in the Hollywood District of Portland Oregon. And they showed Straight Outta Compton. Weird.
