Safety Green

Safety patrol guarding the myriad of joggers, cyclists and pedestrians crossing the Steel Bridge in Portland. I doubt this lower level of the bridge has ever seen so much traffic, thanks to the bridge being closed to the vehicles and the MAX train most of this month.

Before this, I didn't even know there WAS a lower level to the bridge--let alone that it afforded such a great, close view of the river. If you live in Portland, it's worth the stroll. Start at the Rose Quarter MAX stop, walk across the Steel Bridge, then follow the river walk down to Old Town / China Town. Great way to get our of your car and get to know the city.


  1. I like the added yellow for contrast, very captivating that way!

  2. Nice. The yellow vest caught my eyes and led me through the other elements. :)

  6. nice manipulation. photoshopped?

  7. Yep, Photoshop. I have to ask myself, "Am I good photographer or just a good Photoshopper?" =) Doesn't really matter to me. As long as I'm having fun creating my art.

  8. Great photo!!!! My god daughter is/was a cyclist in Portland. She was a victim of a hit and run driver back in the spring. She is still recovering. It's good to know that there is security for the cyclists.
