Sunrise on Sunset
Driving up the Sunset Highway, I saw an extraordinary sunrise. A marine layer created a shelf across the horizon and a sliver of nuclear, orange sun peeked over the top from its pillowy nest, casting a warm, pink glow across the sky. My heart ached to be on a hill or mountaintop photographing it.
From my iPod, The Clash, Train In Vain began to play & jarred me back to reality. I cranked it and crawled my way up the interstate toward by little box in the PSB building on 6th Street, Portland Oregon.
At lunchtime, I walked to the food carts on 5th between Stark & Oak. I chose mexican…..always do. A guy with his shirt wrapped around his head like a turban, sipped daintily on melted chocolate ice cream as if it were Grandma’s chicken soup.
Here are a few snapshots from my walk.
