100 ideas that changed photography

Although less of a project and more out of necessity, I enjoy walking the streets with my camera around my neck. As I commuted to the downtown areas of Portland, Oregon, each day, I wanted to identify the daily elements that make up this great city. As I started to travel, I noticed these similar daily elements exist everywhere. We are all similar, just scattered about the planet.

One of the great elements of living in the Pacific Northwest is how the light changes throughout the year. The morning commute can be dark as night, mid-sunrise, or bright sun. The afternoon commute is similar. High noon can cast long shadows or act as a spotlight.
