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.

Photo #89

Riding the rails

Yesterday we went downtown on the bus to catch the Red Line light rail over to the airport to do some Ikea shopping, then went over to N. Portland via the Yellow Line for lunch and then finally back to downtown Portland to catch our #35 bus back to Lake Oswego. While on the Yellow Line I chatted with this pleasant lady. Her little dog is a rescue dog that she has had for 3 years. I think she is one of our many homeless people here in Portland

Every dog needs a home, even if it's a homeless one. Cute little guy!

Your photo speaks volumes. Lucky wee dog to have this lady; very sad if this lady herself is homeless. So very sad.

It is sad that anyone is homeless- it breaks my heart as everyoe should have a job and a home to call their own.
