Another beautiful day in Portland. This is my backyard. The clouds were just amazing. It was warm enough to walk in short sleeves. I headed to Ladd’s Addition to find some shade. I’m sad that the cold crisp sunny days seem to be ending.

Occupy literature is popping up everywhere in Brooklyn. I wonder if this is happening in other parts of the city.

There was a house here just a few days ago. I’m curious what the new house will look like.

It’s weird to see this building which was always hidden by the building that used to stand in the foreground. The landscape is constantly changing.

Things seem to be wrapping up in this spot for now. The big hole is gone! And look at those clouds. Just amazing.

A few weeks ago I wouldn’t have known what this means. Now that I’ve been to a Timbers game (and loved every minute of it), I know this stands for Portland Timbers Football Club. I can’t wait to go to another game.

I almost didn’t notice these tiny mushrooms. Looking straight down at them, they looked like pebbles.

The whole neighborhood smelled of Daphne.

Night construction is starting on the 17th Ave overpass. This is one last look on the sketchy walkway along Powell that goes under the train tracks. I never walked here. Lots of homeless folks hang out here and with the switchbacks, you couldn’t know what you’d walk into. The new path will not have switchbacks and will be well lit.

Detours are everywhere. The new overpass will be open this fall. I can’t wait.
