The “tonal” filter really just makes everything so much prettier.

Pictures at the top of and at the bottom of the Astoria Column since I couldn’t get them with my SLR, at Bursts Chocolates and Browsers’ Bookstore in Corvallis, meeting Phoebe and working on projects in Denver, and driving home through beautiful Eastern CO/Western KS.

I feel like since the last time we were in Portland in 2011, social media or maybe something else made it a really big deal to eat at/drink at/go to the hip/happening places when travelling to a new city, and Nat and I are just not into that. In Portland we mostly went back to all the places we liked last time (Barista [this picture, awwe], Petite Provence; we stayed with my cousin in Alberta), or I would quickly look for a high-rated place on Yelp and we’d go there. And I am almost never disappointed with where we eat. Like, I don’t know, maybe people think Figaro’s Pizza isn’t “cool”… but the joke’s on them, because it was possibly the best pizza we’ve ever had.
