Weather Bird

This sign will forever be etched in my brain. Something to stare at in the early morning as I wait for my bus.

You Are Here

Directional sign for the MAX train here in Portland. Sure love that aspect of the TriMet public transit system. The bus? Not so much.

This Train

I ride the electric commuter train to work every day here in Oregon, but don't see many old freight trains any more.

The Falling Leaves

There's still some leaves left on the trees here, but they're fading fast.

Ghost Moon

Ghostly image of a full moon. (30-second exposure on a cloudy night.)

Spoon in the Road

To paraphrase Will Rogers, "When you come to a spoon in the road, take it."

Fix You

I've had the song "Fix You" by Coldplay going through my head all day. Seems to go well with this photo and my mood.

Sale! Sale! Sale!

SHAMELESS SELF-PROMOTION ALERT!
Just a quick heads up that I've slashed prices at my Shutterfly store my Photrade store in time for the holiday shopping. You can get almost any Crossmark Photo on playing cards, magnets, puzzles, notecards, mugs--even a nice keepsake box or desktop organizer. [Update: Canvas prints, frames, shirts, coasters, softballs and aprons too.]
If you have a favorite Crossmark Photo and don't see it in the store, let me know. I'll be happy to add it.
Here's a few of my faves from the flower category:





Fernage

We've officially moved into the rainy season here in Portland, Oregon. Pulling from my photo archives to remember the sunny days. Hope I have enough to last until the sun pops out again. =)

Take Out the Papers and the Trash

Colorful trash and recycle bins outside a house.

Seems fitting considering the election. Out with the old. In with the new. This isn't a political blog (I keep saying that, don't I?) and I'm not about to say who I voted for. I just hope someone will restore America's image and goodwill in the world. There's a big mess to be cleaned up.

Cash for Cars

The car salesman tells me that this sign has been up since 1970-something. That makes the sign an antique. And me too, now that I think of it.

Happy Leaves

A mottled mass of happy yellow leaves. A welcome sight as I walk along and try to make sense of life.
