Roof Line

This is the roof of the bandstand Fort Allen Park on the Eastern Prom. Take a look at this blue, January winter sky! If it hadn't been so frigid out at this site (-11 and windy), I might have stared at this sky for more than a few brief moments. Don't look too long! Just point the camera and shoot. It reminds me of that Seinfeld line about staring at a woman's breasts, "... it's like looking at the sun. You're supposed to just take one peek and then look away!" I certainly was always cautioned about being careful during the viewing of an eclipse as a child, but Mom never mentioned parts of the body. Now, why I'm thinking about this this morning, I have no idea!

  3. That is a pretty blue sky and you ask why you are thinking about those other things. It's because you are a guy, that's why.

  4. Hey, if it's 11 below zero and you're out taking photographs, you can think about boobs all you want! Perhaps you need to get in where it's warm? :-)

  5. Could it have something to do with the shape of the roof? Love that blue sky!

  6. It looks like a Texas sky if you ask me. You can look as long as you want.

    BTW, I've been asked to pass along a message from TexWis Girl:

    I still can't comment or even get Birdman's blog page to load! and i don't think he stopped by my blog that day to see my message to him! i bet he thinks i just started not visiting! (i even tried to clear my history to see if that would help, and it didn't...)
    if you can comment, would you let him know some of us are having trouble? i do enjoy his posts and hate not being able to tell him so!

  12. Hey, ship it out to Vegas and tell them it's another pyramid. -11? Remind me not to visit Portland in January. I'm a weenie when it comes to cold.

  15. I never knew the January winter sky looked this beautiful in Eastern Prom. The beautiful sky made the roof look even more beautiful! The colors contrasted each other perfectly, allowed for the details to be revealed.

  16. I love the (almost) minimalism in this image. This looks like an oriental stupa, it's pretty cool.

    I have been unable to post comments on your page for more than a week but it seems Blogger has finally solved the problem. It was about time!
