Theme Day "Street Lights and Signs"
A timely and informative sign stands on SE Grand Avenue at Yamhill. Note the different-colored background behind the seven. Just how many delays should one expect?
(I've moved this photo here because I had the dates wrong in part of September. I tried to put the comments from it below here.) Caught in mid-message, the electronic sign makes it appear the bridge is closed. Actually, it's announcing the next multi-day closure as renovations continue on the bridge, the same one mentioned in my theme day post. The traffic signal changed to green, giving me no chance to take another shot; this one's sort of blurry, but I still like it quite a bit. Hope you do, too.
Hello Lynette and welcome to the city photo blogs from Explorer Dave at http://sarasotadailyphoto.com in FL.
I'm spent most of my life in Eugene OR, which I love, but if I where to ever move back to the Northwest it would likely be Portland. It is a very beautiful city. I'm looking forward to your posts, the will be sure to bring back many memories. Speaking of posts do you have a photo of post hole park?! For those who don't know that's an official city park in Portland where the whole park could fit in a close up photo!
It's one of the quirky things I like about Portland, plus all the fountains and Powell’s Books. Have fun with your blog.
All My Best.

Is this the park you talking about, David? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mill_Ends_Park
Thanks for the encouraging words. I'm certainly enjoying Portland and my camera!

I had the name a bit wrong, but yep that's the one!
And Portland is a great city to enjoy, even with all the gray skies and drizzle!
