August Break :: 8.30.13

31 Aug

Design by Jen Rose Garden

I’m in Central Oregon with no access to wi-fi (might not even pack my laptop), so here’s another from beautiful downtown Portland. This may or may not be the final post of the August Break – we’ll see if I come home with anything. At any rate, it’ll definitely be September before I can post anything new.

Thanks for following along!

Here are a couple more from yesterday’s walk. If you look closely, you’ll see this is composed of helmets.

Design by Jen Farmers Market

Today. Today, the HTML climbed through the monitor and attempted to scratch out my eyeballs. Really.

And so. I declared, “I’m going for a walk!” And I did. And I was reminded. Of why. I do these monthly challenges. And I was grateful. For the push. For the excuse. And for this city. Its sounds. Piano players commanded to “Please play me.” Blocks cordoned off for lunchtime concerts. Its bustle. An art museum. A farmer’s market.  Its lavender smells wafting and reminding me of weekend adventures. Its colors. Its contrasts. The pausing. The tilting of the head. The peering around the corner. The what-if-I-looked-from-a-different-angle. The re-energizing of an afternoon.

Last night’s (pre-torrential downpour) rain made for excellent red light reflection.

I see the red thread through the Timbers Army… If you’ve never been, go.

In case you don’t find what you’re looking for over on Hawthorne, there’s always this option on Clinton Street.

As I near the halfway mark, I’m noticing the theme of signage in these pics – after all, red does attract attention. View the growing set all at once, if you wish.
