Pioneer Square. Portland, Oregon June 2012
« on: June 30, 2012, 12:50:32 PM »

I was spending the day with my daughter in downtown Portland. Did some time at the Art Museum for me then at the local shopping center for her. I saw this while coming down the escalator. I went back up and did the photograph coming down again.

Good shooting, Robert. The second trip down the escalator was worth the trouble.

Simple, elegant and well processed. This is a really good example of the 'photographers eye'.

Great Robert... and how wonderful that you not only recognised that spark of seeing something which ignited that flame of creativity - but you also had the committment and made the effort to go back and photograph it.

Excellent creation. Shows that you are contemplative of your surroundings.

Thank you all again.
Julie,
I attended a workshop long ago where Photographer Ruth Bernhard said, "You must always listen to that little voice in your head when its says Today is the day." She shared how she was walking down a San Francisco street and spied a crushed tea pot. She picked it up and took it home because she saw something in that smashed piece of metal. She photographed that pot later. It's one of her icon photographs.
I was a kid then and thought how strange to actively listen to voices in my head on photography. But, today I know she was right all along. I will listen to my photographers voice.
Thank you once more.

The voice that's saying "kill! kill! kill!", is that my photographer's voice, or another one?

They are all one; it's a wonder of the Universe.
