Portland is... weird. And I love it! Okay, a lot of it at this point is being weird for weirdness's sake. Surely the native Portlanders have heard tell by now of the hipster shenanigans on Portlandia and other pop culture media, and indeed, some people there embrace that charm like a body pillow. But the weirdness has been there since before contemporary hipsterphilia/hipsterphobia took hold, and it's great to see how those roots have grown.
As someone who has always delighted in novelty, I'm cool with it. Even the obvious and absurd super-faux-hipsters are fun to see, and they all make for great photos. Maybe I'd tire of it if I lived there, but as an outsider, I always get a kick out of visiting this weird town.
By the way, not all of these are in Portland proper, but again, outsider. That whole area to me is either Portland or Seattle. Deal with it. Okay! Start the slideshow, pa!
