Photography: The Tunnel

Every once in awhile, I drive by this industrial area of Portland and off in the distance is this tunnel. That voice calls, you should check that out and take some pictures. Usually, I do not have my camera or I’m in a hurry. Yesterday, I had my little Pentax Optio W60, so I stopped to snap a few shots after hiking in a ways.

The tunnel had the usual graffiti and off in the distance was that legendary light. The date at the of the tunnel noted ‘1910’.

Tattoo Tribute: Columbia River Gorge

Yesterday, I stopped by Infinity Tattoo in Portland, Oregon to visit Amanda Sue Myers and Paul Zenk. While conversing with Paul, he directed me to the tat he was working on. John Cain, Paul’s client, had a vision of paying tribute to the Columbia River Gorge. The Gorge is a diverse gateway that houses majestic beauty, the mighty Columbia River (of course, there are numerous dams), amazing historical events, and FISH!).

I gazed down on the work in progress and told John to please send me a finished photo of the beautiful tattoo.

John Cain's New TatThe tattoo depicts the forested plateau above the gorge, Crown Point’s Vista House, the sturgeon and steelhead and salmon that move up the Columbia River into many tributaries. A very nice piece of work.
