Quote of the Day – Langston Hughes on Rain

I love the rain. I love how clear it makes the air. And, in Oregon, we get plenty of it. Tomorrow is the 4th of July, which means, the rain is about to leave the area for the 60 days of summer. Time to break out the air conditioner. 🙂 Let the rain kiss you….

Photo of the Day – Portland at Night

Photo of the Day – Hawthorne Lift

The Hawthorne Bridge, on a sunny day, and the mechanism that makes it lift. Just thought the color balance was interesting. I hope you think so, too! A little red, white and blue to brighten your day.

Photo of the Day – Softer Fremont

I’m a fan of Portland Bridges, as you’ve seen from other pictures. This is the Fremont Bridge in Portland, Oregon. With a nice soft focus filter on it.
