November 17, 2017

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.

Photo Friday: Coffee Man

January 6, 2017

Last Wednesday I spent some time downtown, looking for a photo to take for school.  While down there I spent some time doing street photography.  I was trying to work on my story telling with pictures, and I think the last photo I took, while waiting for the bus, does it the best.

I used a window in the bus stop as a framing device, of an older homeless man who spends his day sitting in the same entryway, in a wheelchair, with a sleeping bag covering his legs.  While sitting there, people will bring him coffee, to help, which is why he has coffee cups lined up next to him.  I especially how the coffee cups helped tell the story of this man.

Day 50: Bird song

February 12, 2012

Bird Song

 

I used to listen

To the song of a bird

Outside my window.

It was a happy,

Joyful tune,

That the world wanted to hear.

Then I got too busy

And stopped listening,

Now the bird’s song

Is silenced,

And the world cries.

 

R.I.P.  Whitney Houston
