One of my first times experimenting with external flash. I was on an impromptu photo walk throughout Portland, Oregon and saw this. Thought it was interesting, and very characteristic of Portland.

I played around a few times with the flash, and finally go this exposure. This was awesome as it allowed me to get stunning detail of the typical cloudy Portland weather, and some of the archetecture in the background, while getting the detail of someones inscription on this rock placed on the waterfront.
