The creative act lasts but a brief moment, a lightning instant of give-and-take, just long enough for you to level the camera and to trap the fleeting prey in your little box.

Historic Dolphins on the Willamette River
The Oregon Portland Cement Company operated for 70 years
in Lake Oswego's Foothills area that now has condominiums,
apartments and Foothills Park. The plant went into operation
in 1916. What you see here are the last remnants of the
business. The dolphins were used to tie up the ships that
would come up the river to load cement .
