Out of the entire city of Portland, the is the only phone booth I’ve seen.

I love how the bricks, on this sidewalk, have been cut into straight edged shapes to fit around the round shape of the light post.

Strangely enough, I love winter pictures in black and white.  This shot was taken during the second snow storm to hit the Portland area this season.

Photo Friday: Window into History

Before the city of Portland paved their roads, the streets were made of brick, and I found a pot hole that revealed this fact clearly.

I keep on seeing these scarves on a line, on my way to the bus.  I find them both interesting, and colorful.

Photo Friday: Framed

September 15, 2017

The Art of Photography, on YouTube, posted a challenge about framing the subject, and I found this guy biking in Portland between two signs.  The color in the signs are too distracting, so I changed it to black and white.

Day 20: The Building

January 13, 2012

The Building


I grew up with this building,

I grew up in this building.

It was started the day I was born

And built as I grew;

Each floor another year,

Each brick another memory.


The building is quite tall now;

Nearly eighty stories;

I’m starting to see cracks in the walls,

And some bricks are falling from the top floor.

Every day more bricks disappear

Along with the memories that they represent.


The building is now rubble,

And I am now gone;

All that remains is

The memory of the structure

That once stood as my life.



I realize this poem is a little serious.  If you want to see an explanation of the poem go to for the video.
