Autumn Tribute

This week, a friend found out he has stage four cancer. I guess this photo is my tribute to him. Like falling leaves, his life is changing into a winter season of difficulty. But there will be a Spring.  Love you, Jason.

Ball and Stripes

There's a brand spankin' new playground at Marysville School in Portland. Bright colors abound.

(My son had to throw this ball up in front of the wall only about four times until we go the shot.)

Dusky Discs

It's not often I spy farm equipment now that we live in the city. Found this disc while out on a scenic drive in the outskirts.

Viking Bell

A warning bell outside a warehouse near 17th and McLoughlin. The sign next to it says, "If this bell rings, call 9-1-1." That would be an interesting conversation.

Razor Loop

A loop of razor wire keeping the snoopers out of a warehouse lot.

I like to call this photo "Something My Mother Would Never Take A Picture Of".

For My Grandkids

I don't recycle for myself. I recycle for my grandkids.

(By "I", of course, I mean my wife.)

17th Street Warehouse

Went out for a drive this weekend looking for a good photo op. Found grunge heaven near 17th and McLoughlin -- an entire block of old warehouses.

Five Stones

Wrapping up a week of beach photos from Westport, Washington.  (Which was an incredible locale, by the way--if you're into free, secluded, luxurious vacations by the ocean.)
