We flew to Portland on Tuesday. Hadn’t seen this type of airplane in a long time. It had whirly-things but was a really nice ride…

We arrived to rain (not really a surprise) but set out Wednesday morning for a day of (wet) exploration.

Today was a beautiful, sunny day for our trolley ride to OMSI, the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry. My lovely niece the talented Katura Reynolds works there.

I found this great place to stand where I looked through a wall of windows to the bridge but I could also see the exterior corner of the large lobby. I tried to play with the reflections of vehicles on top of the bridge.

Then I realized there was also reflection of the bridge in the water.

One thought on “Portland…

  1. The reflections are wonderful. Portland is so different from what I always imagined it. Looking forward to the next batch of pics..
