Static cling…

“I roamed the countryside searching for answers to things I did not understand. Why thunder lasts longer than that which causes it, and why immediately on its creation the lightning becomes visible to the eye while thunder requires time to travel. How” Leonardo de Vinci, 1488

Old arch, new designs…

Looking out through the Burke Building arch toward the Columbia Center Tower in Seattle, Washington. Downtown Seattle architecture is a pleasant blend of old & new, with reflections, angles and visual pathways toward Puget Sound.

That pleasing blend….

Big, puffy clouds marching across the sky. Warmth in the air. No storm threats. A pleasing blend in nature that feels healthy and vital.

Alone on a Ridge

“Thus we play the fool with time, and the spirits in the clouds above mock us.” Shakespeare

“My land is bare of chattering folk; the clouds are low along the ridges, and sweet’s the air with curly smoke from all my burning bridges.”  Dorothy Parker

“I owned the world that hour as I rode over it. free of the earth, free of the mountains, free of the clouds, but how inseparably I was bound to them.” Charles Lindbergh

Photography: Old Sign & No Seating

Forest Park Burgers SB

Picnic and Ivy SB

No Pee SB

A very vintage sign with a neon touch, from long ago, at the Forest Park Burgers site on NW Skyline. Shut down for decades, the sign shows that wear that adds to its charm of old. Once a destination to escape the confines of Portland, the spot has long been closed down and forgotten, overshadowed by all the trendy eateries of Portland. The picnic tables are being over come by the ivy that unfortunately invaded Forest Park long ago from nearby gardeners that introduced the vegetation.

The don’t pee here admonition was nailed to the wall in a somewhat remote spot where someone might sneak to for immediate relief. 

I noticed the neon burger sign has been photographed by quite a few others, so I am glad my eye saw the potential. I was in the area searching for an old cemetery, which I have yet to find. Still looking.
