Photo of the Week 1/8/12

The KOIN Center (AKA the King Kong Building)
Taken from SW 5th Ave
Portland, Oregon
Friday 1/6/12


  1. Is it really called the King Kong Building? Cool.

  2. Who, or what is Koin? Nice shot. That red brick sure stands out in the landscape. Pretty phallic, if you ask me.

  3. Hi Kat: Had I "spelled" the name correctly (since edited) it would have been easier to get: KOIN--it's the call letters of a TV station (originally a radio station dating back to 1925.)

    It's difficult to photograph a high-rise building without it looking phallic--I guess there's a reason for that!
