2012, Day 84 - Gotham

Sometimes modernity isn't soulless.  Most of what we build today might have some stylistic queues from the past but we are all about efficiency and value so we build neighborhoods of hundreds of homes with one three floor plans and everyone there thinks that their home is unique because they have a different color granite for their counter tops.

But occasionally we get things right.  The photo below is part of Highway 99 in southeast Portland.  It has undergone a major face lift and it is really rather nice.  A little Art Deco really makes it interesting and it isn't what I would consider a showpiece location.  It is, however, heavily trafficked and on a cloudy evening like we have today it is really very impressive.
