For today’s post I wanted to try something a little different. As an art director and designer, I’m always looking for texture, colour, shape and pattern in imagery — most of the time I don’t even realize it, it’s just something my mind is naturally conditioned to do. So I thought I would post a collection of images from my trip to the Pacific Northwest that I find texturally interesting.
Let me start off by saying that I’m a bit of a wino! I like to try different local wines when I’m traveling and add bottles from around the world to my (ever dwindling) collection. When I was in Oregon, I wanted to head out to Williamette Valley to do some vineyard touring — I love Oregon Pinot Noir — but was running short on time. Since I wasn’t able to visit wine country, I stopped into an urban winery in SE Portland called ENSO instead.
