Arc over water

There isn’t a big-name architect attached to Calgary’s George C. King Bridge over the Bow River at St. Patrick’s Island but it’s beautiful all the same.

Old technology, meet new technology

It was surprising enough to find a photo booth at the back of the Holocene (concert room/nightclub/arts venue/event space) in Portland, Oregon. Even cooler to see the booth is an upgraded variety to only take credit cards — with a tap-and-pay terminal, no less! Good to see this old-school technology finding a home in the age of the selfie.

You called me up on a pay phone

Public payphone are getting harder to find. This one, for example, was removed in the weeks since I walked by to capture it.

Crisis-cross crossing

I might be going out on a limb here … but wide-angle lenses and Calgary’s Peace Bridge are a match made in heaven.

Another snapshot from my visit to Phoenix earlier this spring … this is Rosson House, one of the few Victorian-era homes remaining in the city.

The idea of a rodent pointing a firearm at me is unsettling … but happily this is just two-dimensional street art in East Portland.

This piece of public art sits at the east end of the Hawthorne Bridge in Portland, Oregon. This view, looking up, was snapped on my trip there earlier this spring.

Tillikum Crossing

This striking structure is part of Tillikum Crossing, the newest bridge across the Willamette River in Portland, Oregon. Opened to traffic in fall 2015, it’s reserved for use by MAX light rail Orange Line trains, Portland Streetcars, cyclists and pedestrians. It is the first bridge of this sort in the United States, according to TriMet.
