Art Museum Reflection

Each Wednesday I try, when I'm in town, to attend the Downtown Bible Class during the lunch hour. It's held in a large room at the Portland Art Museum along the South Park Blocks. A humble lunch of bagels, chips, bananas, and coffee is available. Last Wednesdays class was the annual special one that's just before Christmas. It was on the third floor in a larger more ornate room with a lunch buffet. When the gathering was over, as I walked into the foyer I saw this photo opportunity. The reflection and the contrast of straight and curvy lines caught my attention.

Long Shadows

This is a couple of weeks ago looking south in the Park Blocks of downtown Portland as the Winter Solstice approaches. It's amazing that we're just the right distance from the sun to have four distinct seasons.

Getting ready for Christmas Eve with the grown-ups.

No Snow This Christmas...

...but the kids would like it to snow.
