Let's get started:

The Hawthorne Bridge is one of Portland's oldest bridges...in a city known as "Bridge City"! It is also one of Portland's most popular bridges.

Hundreds of bicyclist cross the bridge daily to and, from their workplaces downtown. With all the bicycles, Portland is known as an environmentalist city and, they are proud of it!

The Union Station in Portland is an Oregon Landmark!  Construction of the station began in 1890 at a cost of  $300,000.

It officially opened on February 14, 1896. One of the highlights of the station is the 150 ft. tall Romanesque Revival clock tower.

Another name for the Hawthorne may be "Bicycle Bridge" because hundreds and hundreds bike over it daily. It is a bascule bridge (drawbridge).

Captured from underneath the Morrison Street Bridge. Light is reflecting off of the support structure of the bridge giving it a golden hue.

Looking at Downtown Portland an East Bank dock! It is still "Blue Hour"! The Willamette River is calm and serene and, lights are reflecting off the water with no distortion.

This is the walkway to the Morrison Street Bridge! The capture is from the approach to the bridge from the Eastbank Esplanade and is looking west toward downtown.

The original bridge was built in 1887 and was a wooden truss swing span bridge. It was the first Willamette River bridge in Portland. And, had the distinction of the longest bridge west of the Mississippi River. The Morrison Street Bridge was rebuilt in the 1950's.

The Japanese Gardens, in Portland are five and half acres in size and, consists of 5 sub-gardens. One realizes a sense of peace, harmony, and tranquility when visiting theses beautiful gardens!

This is the Pagoda at the Japanese Gardens. One of the most authentic and largest Japanese gardens outside of Japan! The Pagoda is not far from the entrance to the Gardens.

It actually covers up an ugly fire hydrant since the City of Portland insists that they have them in case of an emergency...which makes a lot of sense in case of a fire. The cover up is an excellent idea since a hydrant just sitting out in those beautiful gardens would be a distraction.

The Morrison Street Bridge! It is one of many bridges in Portland also known as Bridge City because of the many bridges that cross the Willamette River.

What is unique about this capture are the reflections off of the Morrison. Usually the water is not this still resulting in very little distortion of the colorful lights coming from the bridge. The Morrison is a basule bridge (drawbridge).

The Japanese Maple is one of the most beautiful trees in the world. It was captured late Fall in the Japanese Gardens! A magnificent place to visit should you ever decide to come to Portland or, even if you are from Portland.
