    Red Sky in the Morning

    I handed the camera to Ashley as I drove her to a computer class at OHSU this morning.

    I’m always amazed by the different colors of the sky.

    And, sure enough, it was raining before evening.

  • Clouds + Trees + Field

    Clouds + Trees + Field

    Unlike last week, my morning bike ride is not the mile and a half to the Sunriver village; it’s three-plus miles to work.

    As a plus, I get to take pictures from my “favorite photo spot” across from the airport.

  • A View From 6A

    A View From 6A

    I printed my boarding pass this evening and confirmed my seat: 6B. Drat! An aisle seat. I boarded, sat down, and waited for Mr. 6A to appear. He came down the aisle and stopped. “I’m sorry,” gesturing across my knees. I asked if he cared about which seat was his. “No.” I scooted left and gazed out my window. Win!

    Mr. 6A (now Mr. 6B) was an affable man. We chatted from boarding to deplaning,1Boss. Deplane. Deplane. being “those guys.” You know who I mean. You’re tired, at the end of a long day, getting on a plane hoping to rest. Then a couple of guys near you babble the whole flight. Tonight, that was me. Sorry…

    We rode on the left side going north in the evening. Thus the sun beamed in our windows. Although the plane looked new and the windows quite scratch-free and clean, the air was hazy and my light shirt reflected in the windows.2One of these days I’ll remember to wear a dark shirt when traveling. It should cut down the reflections in the window. Either that or make a black velvet shroud that drapes over the camera and below to block the reflections. Not a recipe for good pictures. At least, until we got to Oregon and some clouds.

    We landed on PDX’s North-South runway, a first for me. Our approach took us directly over downtown Portland and then diving down to the right to land. Interesting, to say the least.

    Of course, I took too many pictures of clouds. Here are just a few of them. :-)

  • Another Good Friday

    Another Good Friday

    It’s Friday! The weather is gorgeous. Here are a few of the shots I took on the ride to work.1Yes, taking pictures slows down the commute. For that matter, so does stopping at Starbucks. At least taking pictures keeps me from showing up to work all sweaty.

    I hope you have a wonderful day.

    This is day 8 on the bike this year.

  • Another Beautiful Morning

    Another Beautiful Morning

    Another day, another chance to ride my bike to work. The professional weather predictors said rain, but my trusty weather rock said, “Not yet.”

    I stopped at Starbucks along the way and cooled in a chair outside, watching the people go by. It was great to start with no: no book, no magazine, no music, no computer, and no talk show host. Just me and my white mocha, planning the day.

    My plans completed, I freed my bike and pedaled the rest of the way to work. Opposite the Hillsboro airport, I had to stop and take a couple of pictures of the sky.

    Will it rain? Maybe, maybe not. ? :-)

    This is day seven on the bike this year.

  • Monday Morning Sky

    Monday Morning Sky

    This is the sky that greeted me as I walked into work this morning.

    Happy Monday, everyone! It’s going to be a great week. :-)

    Yes, folks — it was time for another of my famous sky shots. ;-)

    Gray Day

    Not all days are blue. Some are gray. This is today’s sky.

    This was taken with manual white balance to get some semblance of accurate color.

    I am an amazing photographer. :-D
