Basement Window


Window near 36th and Hawthorne in Portland. The brick wall is actually a bright teal, but I'm in a monochromatic mood this week.

Addendum:  Here's the color version for those who are curious. Oh, and this wall is across the street from the Waffle Window -- a must visit for any Portlandians!

Sleipner


A boat from the wharf at Westport, Washington. I romanticize about life by the ocean, sunset walks on the beach all summer long.

Rocket Fever


Space-age lines of the Pacific Science Center in Seattle, Washington. Originally built for the 1962 World's Fair -- when space exploration was all the rage.

Humming Carved

Carved humming bird -- detail from a bench at Leach Botanical Garden in southeast Portland.

I stumbled upon the botanical garden while out for a drive, looking for a place to shoot. It's a quaint place to take a peaceful stroll -- and free to the public.

Ode to the Goat

Part of a mural at Lents Park in Portland. The singing guy, I get. But the goat?

Thoughtful on the Dunes

A man on the dunes looking out over the Pacific ocean. (Westport, Washington).

I haven't taken all that many sunset / sunrise photos, so the color in this shot surprised me. I assumed that photographers used filters or Photoshop to color these shots. But the color here is straight from the camera.

El Pato Wall

Exterior wall of the "El Pato Feliz" (yes, "The Happy Duck") mexican restaurant near 92nd and Foster in Portland.

After four months off, I'm finally back to photo blogging. A few of you loyal fans have nagged just enough to get me going again. So from the bottom of my camera bag -- thanks for the encouragement. =)
