Tom McCall Waterfront Park

Hanami - Cherry Blossoms Viewing
Yesterday was a bad day to take pictures, rain all day! So, we decided to come Thursday to view the cherry blossoms before the wind and the rain get a hold of the flowers. Not a bad morning at all, except once we were done photographing, the light rain came in.

G Scale

Flower Pot Point
On a not rainy day, I ventured outside and play with my trains, this time, I just want to take pictures as I was inspired by my friend Cak Soekir in Surabaya, Indonesia and he likes miniature, one thing I did not do is to have 1:1 scale present in the pictures. Next time.

Portland, the views from above

Portland from Pittock Mansion
Rule number one, always carry your camera if you think you will be visiting a place that might be of interest to you, especially if it is not raining. We almost come here every year in the past three years, but every time the scenery is always different, be that the clouds, the after the rain effects and the time of the day and time of the year. This time we came here almost sunset time and I am just lucky to get these images.

Columbia Gorge in the winter

Columbia Gorge looking west
On a wintry day (even though it is already the first week of March), we set out to the gorge again to take our nephew from Indonesia, the forecast was for snow shower, but we always luck out coming here, no rain and no wind. It is still cold but manageable.

Lewis and Clark College

Lewis & Clark College
Today, we took our nephew and his wife to the college that he went almost 18 years ago, there was an International Event in the school for foods and performance. I chose to walk around the campus and test my new lens. Here's the result.
