Portland Bridges…

the Marquam Bridge (1966) stretches I-5 (North/South Bd.) across the Willamette River at the south end of Portland, Oregon. Note the old submarine moored at the Oregon Museum of Science & Industry (OMSI). I took this photo from the Tilikum Crossing Bridge (2015). Twelve bridges span the Willamette River in the Portland Metro area.

approaching the wild…

“To me, a wilderness is where the flow of wildness is essentially uninterrupted by technology; without wilderness the world is a cage.” David Brower

“Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out that going to the mountains is going home; that wildness is a necessity” John Muir

Rustic cabin…

Old cabin in the Oregon Ochoco Mountains, 1974. A traditional shot I took over the years when passing through this area. In this one, the shots a touch blurry using the old cardboard housed Instamatic. I tweaked this one into B&W. Below is the original, faded image in color.

Sic Semper Tyrannis

C. S. Lewis on Do Gooder Tyranny

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”
