Neons are in! Street level matching colors, No. 6

Here's a map for you. I hope it will enhance your enjoyment of today's post, as well as those on the upcoming days. We'll start with Powell's Books, on the northwest corner, and then go counterclockwise from there.

First up, a man in bright red-orange shoes, wearing an orange jacket. He is walking north across West Burnside at the intersection of SW 10th (behind him) and NW 10th (in front of him). You see, Burnside, whether it be West Burnside or East Burnside, divides Portland into its northern and southern sections.

There's a good chance that he's going to Powell's Books which is on the corner he's headed toward. The red post and railing is in front of the store's main entrance. Powell's Books takes up that entire downtown Portland city block.

There's an orange sign on a pole just beyond the woman who has turned to look south, towards me. Although I can't quite read it when I click on the original size, I can see that there is the logo of the Portland Streetcar. Up the street to the north on the man's right, there appears to be a sign on a building which is red and orange.

Lots of matching colors to be found, thanks to the man's orange jacket and shoes. I took this photo on May 1, 2012.

Powell's is my favourite place in Portland!!

And I wouldn't be caught dead in a pair of orange shoes!

I saved this one. Orange is my least favorite color but I just love it here. It seems all eyes are on him. Probably not actually, but it's fun to think so.

There was a time when I would have been horrified at the idea of orange shoes, but I'm lightening up.

Great post. I wonder if his choice of clothes that day was intentional or just a happy coincidence?

What a great way to keep your photos fresh. I happen to like the orange shoes: )

I bet he attracts a lot of bugs with those bright colors.
