Metro Movie Theater

As a small town street photographer, downtown Eugene, Oregon is slowly becoming more visually interesting.

I’ve lived here since the age of 7 and the challenge I’ve come to realize is it’s somewhat limited visual opportunities as a result of being a smallish college town, even though it has a population of over 171,000 (as of February 2020).

Add to that the unfortunate transient population (as opposed to the truly homeless) has made the downtown area less vibrant in allowing those who reside in this area to feel safe enough to walk the streets after sundown.

As a resident of the area, I’m hoping that changes for the better as there are many potential images to be made in the marginal lighting conditions that night time affords.
