I love the architectural details in the old Portland Parks. This is the baluster that support the upper railing next to the path overlooking the rose gardens. I love the moss, the worn stone, the contrast with the bricks and the gardens.
I have been taking almost all of my pictures using the manual modes on my camera. And about half of them are even without auto-focus. It’s kind of a freeing feeling knowing how to change the settings so that I can get the picture I want rather than rely on the presets.
