It may be a small world after all but it is a busy world. The theme for this week’s photo challenge put on by our friends at the Daily Post is EVERYDAY LIFE. The following images were captured on the streets of Downtown Portland, Oregon on a typical Saturday afternoon in late summer.

  4. Those figures are amazing! I love the way you’ve put the photos together. Brilliant!
    I got mesmerized by those figures… watching the numbers grow by the second is mind-boggling… and frightening too!

  5. Oh, good heavens, I just made the screen image large enough for me to read and see it is yours! So, is this a new blog? I’ve enjoyed your posts with photo series on the other blog. Now I’ll be able to see more, and read more, which I think is way cool.
