Looking for Paintings - Part 12

The last posting was a bit confusing. I was trying to fix a date to some of the images, most of which were taken about two months prior to this posting, and moving suddenly into past tense made it sound like I was talking about things that happened today. Not so. I'll try to put a reference date to the posts from now on. Sorry for the confusion.

In and around Portland, probably October 21, 2006

This is the Burlington Northern Santa Fe bridge, about four miles north of Portland on Route 30, used exclusively for BNSF trains. Access to it for a good photo was almost impossible. This is the best I could do.

Here's a link to a website with more info, and a shot of the bridge in the up position to let a ship under. That's facing Portland which can be seen in the background to the right.

This is under St. John's Bridge which crosses the Willamette River about a mile north of the BNSF bridge. It's a real pretty bridge with a beautiful park underneath.

Here's a link to everything you ever wanted to know about St. John's Bridge:

About two miles east of downtown Portland is Laurelhurst Park, a stunning neighborhood park surrounded by equally stunning turn-of-the-century homes

Strolling through this park on a Sunday morning made me think of Lady and the Tramp and that era when people went strolling through the park, saying "hello" and appreciating the serenity.

One of the cozy little pathways along the water's edge, stuffed with colorful foliage.

The park takes up about one city block.

Here's an interesting link for more info:
