I don’t know how this came to be here but I’m glad it did!

Good advice! Even the graffiti around here is pleasant!

It seems that some things have changed around this place since it was first built.

Sadly I still haven’t been in the train museum -I’ll enjoy it from the outside for now I guess.

Portland’s getting a new cable-stayed bridge – by the way I recommend doing an image search for “cable-stayed bridge“.

Notice the submarine in the background? There’s a submarine that they let people go on and a train museum within walking distance of my house. I haven’t been in either, what’s up with that???

There are cool train cars to see outside though.

Another tower.

I like the modern facade and shaded south side windows.

The color of this building plus the tracks make for a cool photo.

The burned down “Taylor Electric Supply” building.
