Portland, OR - Dandelions



A couple of dandelions atop Mount Tabor in Portland. And no, I did not blow on this after taking the picture.


This is what you see when you take a nap atop Mount Tabor. There's a flight path right over it.


Two blocks from my apartment. Reminiscent of that REM "End Reconstruction" road sign from the Fables tour -- perhaps less cerebral.

Portland, OR - MAX Stop



Waiting for the train to the airport. Circa Thanksgiving 2005, at the Lloyd Center (NE 11th St.) stop. Let's hear it for white balance, people.

Contacting Chris Higgins

I'm a writer based in Portland, Oregon. I mostly write for Mental Floss magazine (and their website), though I recently had a story on This American Life, and had a cover story last year in The Portland Mercury.

You can follow me on Twitter for occasional jokes, or find me on Facebook for updates on writing and utterly shameless self-promotion.

I'm also a mobile website and smartphone app developer. I work for Cloud Four. In years past, I worked with Night & Day Studios; I helped create Peekaboo Barn, Peekaboo Wild, Big Fat Lies, Life in Short, Cocktail Compass, Nick Jr.'s A-Z With Moose and Zee, Quibble, Savage Love, and a bunch of other apps.
