various incarnations. set 1.

i decided to show pictures of what some of the places looked like where i have lived before now. prior to my current apartment, each place was a rental, hence the white walls. i thought this could be sort of a before and after….like an evolution….of my style. also, i finally felt free to add the color that i have now, since the place is my own.

i lived in the parkview apartments at ne 16th and irving for about 5 years. i didn’t have any furniture to speak of before i moved in, so i bought everything to fit the space.

i loved living there. below are some photos of my place. they are a bit dark. i believe they were taken in the winter of 2001. digital photography wasn’t what it is now.

you can probably recognize certain things that i still have. it was difficult editing. i sold about 75% of my belongings when i moved to san francisco in 2004.

if you live in portland and you’re looking to rent, i would recommend this place. it was a fantastic home. it’s in a rather non-neighborhood, but you can walk downtown, over to 28th and burnside area, or over to lloyd center super easily. it’s on the historic register, and it’s immaculately maintained. i valued this already when i lived there, but then i really missed that aspect of renting when i moved to sf.
