Shooting infrared and color on a Pentax *ist DS, in the Portland, OR area.

Patrick Waterlander's conversations

I first saw this building, a little over two years ago for the first time. I was just in awe, I couldn't stop thinking about it. I had guessed it was an old train station because of the clock, but I now know what it was. I'm still telling you that building has a life of it's own.

They should have turned the buildings into apartments. Solid brick/concrete walls..would have lent themselves to it really well. It would also have been a lot cheaper than starting over with a WHOLE new building.

Hi, gefällt mir. Voted. Noricus from Germany.

The "snow" effect comes from the chlorophyll in vegetation appearing in various shades of light grey to white when shooting infrared.

Thanks. It was hell to edit out the enormous Visitor Center and Museum sign that stood in front of the building. The front corner, part of the lower center window, the supports below the building, and part of the front porch, were obscured. Rebuilding them in Photoshop took several hours.

This photo was actually taken on a blistering hot day in July, with a Hoya R72 infrared filter. The background, which appears to be snow, is vegetation on the west hills (trees and such). In infrared, anything with chlorophyll shows as almost white.

This is a truncated panorama of the Portland waterfront, done in a graphic pen style my father created (no, it is NOT done with the photoshop pen filter).

Correct. A local columnist purchased a framed print of this photo, commenting that she loved it because even though she knew it was in Portland, it gave her a view of the city that was totally unfamiliar.

Bart, thanks for the heads up. Location changed. This was done with a Hoya R72 infrared filter on a Pentax *ist DS.
