Portland, Oregon's new Oak Grove Tri-Met Light Rail Station
March 1, 2015

When I first saw the parking garage under construction, which is less than a mile from where I live, I thought the angled steel poles were going to be structural. I wondered why they weren't perpendicular. Now I know that they are meant to be art, representing reed grass. Readers from Portland will know that much of the outdoor sculpture here is designed to rust, for example:
 I think this represents the skeleton of a building being demolished.



Below (click to see slideshow) are pictures of my trip to the site. 




 When the Tri-Met opens for business this coffee shack could become a booming business.




 Who can predict how the station will effect the Mexican restaurant on the hill across the street.






 On a clear day you can see downtown Portland.


 This logo looks like reed grass.

Not quite spring
Time for some old beach photos
Little Harbor Beach (Wareham) and Cape Cod








That's a hacky sack ball


Going,
and coming back


Sniffing this way and that way




















let's settle down and get this meeting started.




Who am I anyway?
