Photographer's Note

Portland, Oregon is a very well planned city with a great public transportation system. About 20-25 years ago, as the city was growing but before it was too big, a plan was developed to keep the city within certain growth boundries. This serves to preserve the surrounding forests and also make a corridor which is easier to accomodate a metro line. This is the light rail system, MAX, that runs primarily east/west through the city out to the suburbs. Bus lines connect to the MAX lines and run north/south, and the whole city is really interconnected. Unfortunatly, few US cities are paying attention to this great transportation model.
