I love any quote about how we see things in this world. How we perceive things and how life grabs us in the moment. When you look at things do you always accept it at face value or do you dig deeper?
At different moments you see with different eyes. You see differently in the morning than you do in the evening. In addition, how you see is also dependent on your emotional state. Because of this, a motif can be seen in many different ways, and this is what makes art interesting. – Edvard Munch
I took a day trip to Mt. Hood. Which, is one of the reasons I love Portland so much. You can, quite literally, drive from Mountain range to Seashore in a couple hours. Ski and surf? Why not. 🙂 At one of the lakes near the base of Mt. Hood I took this photo from the car. Thought it made a great photo.
…Or “This is a really big blue marble…” Either way, I really liked this photo and thought it was cool do to something special with it.
This photo was taken at the Four Seasons Lodge at Koele, at night, in Lanai City, Lanai, Hawaii. While we were there, someone was getting married and they had the grounds all lit up for different events. I think this is where the guest book was..
Today’s photo and accompanying text are somewhat brief as I am traveling today. Making my way from Portland, Oregon to Lana’i, Hawai’i. So, it might be wise to prepare yourselves to see some beautiful tropical photos. Until then, a moment of reflection.
This photo, taken from the Hawthorne Bridge, gives a really great shot of Portland at dusk, Portland Spirit, Salmon Street Springs and the Willamette River.
Another view from my walk around Mt Tabor Park in Portland, Oregon. This beautiful batch of water is the Portland Drinking water, reservoir #5. Soon the federal government is going to require the City of Portland to cover these beauties, ruining the scenery.
