FALLING FORWARD…

 “I found I could say things

with color and shapes

that I couldn’t say any other way…

things I had no words for.”

  1. Would love to and thanks for the invitation. Your picture reminded of a place I used to go do some business reading when I worked downtown. It is so peaceful. I had several of these hideways around downtown where I would escape the phone and emails to get caught up on issues. These are little treasures that cities should have and do more of.

  2. Raye, I love the way you captured the architecture and fauna of that one downtown park (or hideaway). Thanks for sharing, BTG

    1. We’ve had unseasonably sunny weather…clear blue skies with not a drop of rain in sight. For another week, WeatherMan says. The Keller Fountain is one of Portland’s finest pieces of ART. My pleasure, FrankA, to share. Looking forward to seeing a bit of your own reflective colour…

        1. Your Lady is absolutely beautiful! Read Wiki information and had to smile at the shared space the plaza enjoys: concerts, movies, etc. The Keller Auditorium is home to the Portland Opera Company, and faces the Fountain. The opening season of the opera is “broadcast” on a huge screen outside the building…facing the fountain. The fountain, turned off, becomes multi-layered seating for 3-5 thousand Portlanders who bring blankets, chairs, wine and food…to watch the opera on screen while sitting on the concrete slabs…for free…under the stars! Aren’t we fortunate, FrankA, that our cities embrace ART in many forms…….

                  1. The late choir story was so sad … much the city embraced them and they loved it! … and what a journey home! … gotta love the prison choir story as well. Given the classy lady that you are, I knew you would enjoy these.

                    1. Many thank to the Portland Queen! … The brightest rose in the Rose City. (Oh my … that’s big-time points) … BTW, I can’t recall if I told you, but my next post (6:30 pm your time) mentions you in it. 🙂

    1. I never thought to compare the two having never seen (only read about) Fallingwater.
      The Ira Keller Fountain is one of Portland’s most beautiful public works of ART. A visual surprise at every turn, especially now surrounded by autumn colours. Thank you so much for your comment.

  4. The red maple leaf is my favorite. Wonderful pictures. And since you used an O’Keefe quote, have you ever been to her museum in Santa Fe? Outstanding!!!
