2012, Day 102 - Unit B

Last night's walk was blessed with some light rain.  It's annoying to have to constantly clean your lens of water droplets but it creates wonderful reflections.  And, fortunately, it was warm despite the rain so it was quite a nice evening to be wandering around Portland's heavy industrial neighborhoods.

It was a feast for the senses.  The sounds of cars, diesel engines, and dripping water punctuated by the loud clang of metal on metal the the nearby foundry provided a backdrop.  The air was heavy with the acrid smell of hot metal and wet pavement that was cut with random breezes of cool air.  It was almost sticky with humidity and the Three Amigos, Brian Bonham, Lars Gustafson, and I wandered with wonder.  We had no real plan and I often referenced the map on my phone at intersections to find the route.  Freeform living is refreshing...
