Portland's Christmas Tree, my last two photos of it in 2008

Right after I took each photo, I caught a MAX train at Pioneer Courthouse Square. Thank goodness! I got closer to home that way which meant fewer blocks to walk on these two days.

Oh they are both so pretty, love the comparison. I'm picking the snow covered tree as I didn't get to see one of those this year!

Is this a place where people will be celebrating tomorrow night as well?

That's a magnificent and very handsome tree! I can't decide whether I like it better with the lights or with the snow. Both versions are gorgeous.

Wishing you a peaceful and prosperous new year!

Thses are both beautiful photographs.I don't have a lot to say about last year or this new year. Some thoughts...

I hope 2009 will be better than 2008, 2007, and 2006. I do think our government will be inspired by our new President Obama -- at least I hope so.

I would like to see the War in Irag end and I would like to see the killing stop everywhere.

It is my hope that Japan will stop slaughtering whales and raping virgin forests.

And I hope the people will lose their clubs and no longer club baby seals to death.

What a world we have and live in. 2009 could be so much better than it will be.

Love your photos - now that is what I call proper snow!

I followed your link from the Newcastle upon Tyne (UK) daily photo.

Hope everyone in Portland has a fantastic 2009.
