[pdx_photos] Hey! I Was Shortlisted for Schmap!

1025. I was just advised–and have consented to move forward on it–that one of my Flickrized photos has been shortlisted for the next edittion of the Portland Schmap Travel Guide. Specifically, this one:


Consdering its subject (Jim & Patty's Coffee on NE Fremont Street), it's got a lot of Portland heart and soul. So, naturally, I'm excuciatingly flattered.

Is ironic, no, that I had just gone on about Ristretto Coffee Roasters (which is in the same general area). We don't get over that way as often as we like; Jim & Patty's close a little early for our night-owl lifestyles, and that's Piedmont and this is Baja Gresham, but we need to be coming that way soon. Jim & Patty's coffee is excellent, and I'm betting Ristretto's is too.

Clearly, I need to upload more of my Portland photeaux to Flickr. Hey, I'm no Portland Ground, but I got some mojo working.

Just so you know, the shop is moving down the street if they're making a travel guide- but otherwise, great news. :D
