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 #132 and more!

Yesterday was simply stellar- 70 degrees!


We took the bus to downtown Portland


and had the nicest afternoon.


Alright- some of it was spent in a dark pub


waiting to go into a dark movie house to


watch a 3-D movie about a newly discovered cave


and the 30,000 year old paintings on the walls.


Some of the movie could have been done


differently, but the images made so long ago


were so beautiful. What was the most interesting


thing is none of the images were of hunting and


there was only one obscure human image of a female figure.


After the movie we went over to North 45.


A super duper place for mussels!


We shared a huge bowl of stir fried green beans..


and then shared a huge bowl of steamed mussels in


a spicy garlicky broth. Complete with beer, bread and fries.


Yum. Then we walked the mile down to the bus and came home.


What a fun day.

I like this photo, Kathe. That's what libraries are for. To educate us about things we wouldn't normally think of in a library atmosphere. What better forum than music? cool. :-)
