This week’s photo challenge is quite a challenge and I am afraid too much of one for me so I will have to adapt the theme and stretch it a bit. I am probably the only one on the planet with such a phone as mine; my phone is not smart…in fact it is a dumb phone so dumb that it doesn’t know how to take the simplest of pictures. So as I set out to do this challenge it is with my regular camera.
There is another stretch coming but this one in my opinion is advantageous because it gives me a chance to show you not the neighborhood I live in, but the neighborhood of my new workplace.
After many years of working out of my home office, fate has granted me the opportunity to procure a normal job outside of the home like most people. It happens to be quite a distance from my home neighborhood but since I will be spending so much time here now I suppose this will be my home away from home.
While I live in the city, this place is the sprawl of modern-day suburbia outside my funky town of Portland. This place does however have a personality all its own. It is called Beaverton, apparently because at some point in the past this filled in marshy playground was once home to beavers. Today it is full of mushy fields, offices and giant half filled parking lots. We shall endeavor to carry on and make a go of this new and strange land. I will be using my breaks and lunches to explore this place and you can if you choose, travel with me in spirit…
Consider me the suburban explorer…wish me luck…
