It was noon when I got to Portland, the church bells told me so.
When I tried to see them, I was disappointed to see
Only the huge loudspeaker! No bells!
Walking down to the South Park blocks Farmers Market, I came across this unique building decoration.

I found this grove of autumn glory in Hood River and had to try to capture the colors and textures it presented. Shortly after the shot, the rain began pouring down ... of course we were walking!
And look what happened as soon as we got back in the car!

There was a large flock of beautiful birds taking their fill of the berries in the yard ... they flitted around crazily, yellow-tipped tail feathers fluttering.

The "Lady Washington" was docked in Hood River for their annual Harvest Festival.
If she looks familiar it's because she is also known as the "Interceptor" in the Pirates of the Caribbean; Curse of the Black Pearl movie.
"Oh, the Dauntless is the power in these waters, true enough, but there's no ship as can match the Interceptor for speed."

The picture in this log jumped out at me. I see a small deer at the bottom. The top is a barren desert landscape, complete with setting sun. If you enlarge the picture, you will see the rose blooming in the twilight against the sun.
At least, that's what I see. What do you see?

I'm listening to the much-needed rain hit the roof this morning. The clouds came in yesterday evening, and they were fantastic.
I caught these zebra? tiger? -- cloudy stripes in the front yard framed between the fir and oak trees.

What can be done with a case of corn from the Gleaners? Too much to eat, too beautiful to throw out, too old to freeze or can. I'm thinking winter chicken food! Dried by the sun and breeze, a beautiful yard decoration for now. I have done this every fall, and have yet to get tired of seeing the plump golden kernels shrinking and turning dark yellow and orange through the fall harvest season.
