Seen last Sunday while out and about along the Willamette River, downtown Portland



P5290010

I took the bus downtown, walked towards Tom McCall Waterfront Park and through a small portion of the location known as Portland's Saturday Market--it's also open on Sundays. The neon sign is at the prior location for the market, beneath the Burnside Bridge and next to the MAX stop. I like neon signs a whole lot, so I was tickled when I saw it. I didn't take any photos at the market itself because I didn't want to invade the creative property of the vendors.

I looked a bit and then made my way north on the sidewalk to find a park bench where I could enjoy my picnic lunch I'd brought with me--Cacio de Roma semi-soft sheep cheese from Italy, a hard-boiled egg, cherry tomatoes, blueberries, Extra Toasty Cheezits, and cherries. I remembered my water today! I filled up my Blazers' red metal bottle that I bought at the Columbia employee store on my last visit; sometimes where I work, we get invites to go to that store and save some money on our purchases.

After I ate, I decided to head back and catch the bus home. I'm glad I walked the direction I did because I got to take this photo of the Portland Oregon neon sign. I really like this sign!

I really like the Portland, Oregon neon sign especially with the two street lights included. Great composition Lynette!

The sense of distance in that first shot really appeals to me.
