Take a gander at a few of our Portland, Oregon city scenes. I had a lovely week-end hanging out in city center, so had to shoot a few views. Our Saturday Market (also on Sundays) is bustling from March til after Christmas (despite formidable rains), and our diverse citizenry are as interesting as arts/crafts and random offerings. I picked up a few birthday gifts and enjoyed the afternoon with Marc despite it being in the upper 80s Fahrenheit; it made for sweaty browsing and walking for about 5 miles around the market and along the Willamette River.
I’ve ended up with extra time to post a little more–a change since our joy-eliciting and thriving twin grand babies arrived. There’s a different baby caregiving schedule, for now. And since I don’t always (usually, though) choose written language as my main mode of creative expression, this Monday spot will be primarily photographic pieces. I do like to share shots of places roamed and views that draw eye and mind, so Monday is once more for designated for just that.

Love Portland, Cynthia, and you did justice to its unique ambience.
I’m glad you love our nutty, illustrious city–so much creative energy here! I moved form close-in to a quite “leafy suburb”—but always love going back to see what’s happening since we are still so close. I appreciate your appreciation!
Powell’s books plus marvelous gardens – the perfect combo 🙂
Excellent, colourful, work, Cynthia
Love the adjective “colourful” but I will hesitantly but graciously take the “excellent”, as well 🙂
