  4. What an eye you have!! Your title page is so neat too.
    Were the water fountains running like that all by themselves? or did you use both hands and feet to get that flow of water. :)

    1. This fountain had constant running water.No turn on with hands or feet. Portland is very much into sustainability -- so I thought -- isn't this a waste of water? I really need to find out if this water is re-sent to the treatment plant or what? thanks for the nice comment -- barbara

  6. The most interesting subjects are most often found a little off-track. Nice depth and colours.

  7. Nice shot! I adore alleys -- and wish that they were still a normal part of city/suburb planning.
