Photos: Mostly from my iPhone

Photos: Nature Walk

Last week, I tore the tween girls away from the TV and video games by forcing them to go for a nature walk. DJ had just gotten a bird call – a very neat little device that is  fun when in a nature setting as the birds will fly to you and call back.  I…

Photos: The Past Few Days

The artistic picture I took of the St John’s Bridge. Using the iPhone because I went out with my big fancy camera – and a dead battery.  Yeah…. Laying in a sunbeam on the back deck with a happy dog.  The reward for not killing ourselves after 30+ days of rain.  I can feel the…

Near our train tracks in downtown are these signs warning cyclist that they could get their tires caught in the rails….

Photos: The Reservoir

The girls and I hiked around one of the many Portland reservoirs.  Here are some images from the hike. I should mention that these are open reservoirs – no covers – nothing but signs and a guard. I was reading an article about perspective on photos.  I decided to play around with that a bit with…
