The other place I go to photograph outdoor sculptures is Lake Oswego...which is across the Willamette River from my home and about five miles away.
However, I think I have more of a fondness for the works at the college. There is some real talent on campus.
I photographed everything on these pages with a Canon Elph 300 HS Point and Shoot (link). It's a cool little pocket camera and the price is right at Amazon!
