I do computer stuff for a living, but if I had a magical source of money and could do anything I wanted, I'd just wander around photographing old neon signs. I especially love the weird old hotel and bar signs along Interstate Ave.

Kind of digging this rain. Seems appropriate to the situation at least.

Mutual aid 

While the government argues about "means testing", it's inspiring to see groups like @pdxcovid19mutualaid helping people directly in this time of crisis. I'm lucky enough to have a stable job for the time being. Just kicked these folks some $$, if you or someone you know is in a similar position please spread the word! gofundme.com/f/pdx-covid19-mut

I live for the small pleasures like getting film scans back from the lab. Here are a few scenes from recent days.
