Ceci n'est pas une personne.

(no subject)

Some pictures taken today.

First of train bridge that I don't know the name of. It's the one between the Fremont and St. Johns bridges. (Note: according to The Bridges of Portland Oregon, the bridge is simply known as "Railroad Bridge 5.1", and it goes on to say, "Railroad Bridge 5.1 lies just upriver from the St. Johns Bridge on the Willamette. Seven other bridges were built in Portland before this one. Technically, because these others have been replaced, this is the oldest surviving structure standing across the Willamette in the Portland area.")

Next, pictures of the St. Johns Bridge. It looks like it's emerging from a cast, how it is pointing out from the plastic wrapped repair platforms. Supposedly the bridge is haunted on the Cathedral park end. As I remember the tale, a woman was killed under the north/east side of the bridge, and at night you can hear her screams.

Then, finally, a series of pictures of a red/dead tree surrounded by green living ones. I was hoping to some how contrast the bright red versus the deep rich green, but I don't think I achieved it.
