Portland, Oregon

A lovely painted sign in Portland, Oregon. The older vehicles parked out front add to the old-time feel, too. Snapped this in March 2015.

Via Rail’s Canadian in Jasper National Park. The view is from one of the forward Skyline dome cars, looking back toward the back of the train. Snapped on my cross-Canada train trip back in April 2013.

An oldie for y’all today: People enjoying the ice rink at Nathan Phillips Square outside Toronto City Hall. Snapped this on a nighttime stroll about a decade ago.

Dresden, Germany

Dresden’s cathedral was wrecked during the Second World War and remained a pile of ruin for decades. It re-opened to the public in 2005 after years of painstaking restoration. Here’s the scene outside the landmark in September 2016, its adjacent public square buzzing with activity.

Berlin, Germany

The marquee of an abandoned movie theatre in Berlin, Germany, hides an appropriate former name for the place, which Google tells me means “Do not play”. The last time I was there, in September 2015, the building was in a state of disrepair and was covered with all sorts of art.
