Views from the Rooftop - Boca

Lavender Morning

Though living in this big apartment renting rooms can be a pain in the ass, there are times when I emerge from my room to feel as if I'm walking into a dream. Sometimes the views stop me breathing for a moment and then I run for my camera, hoping my disorganized mind hasn't left it without battery and that I'll have the opportunity to capture what I see.

Foggy Sky with Pipes

A surprising fog one morning erased the city in the distance. View over Barracas.

Foggy Sky White Distance

This is the view over Boca.

Foggy Sky with Bird

This bird held still for a while. The fog seemed to muffle the sounds of the city.

Cotton Candy Sky with Roof

Pressure on my bladder had me sourly getting out of bed, but seeing this made it totally worth it.

Cotton Candy Sky to Distance

More of the same morning.

Black Bubble

Once in a while, it looks like there's a bubble over the city and the clouds are prevented from entering by it, leaving the city in black and the sky a whitish grey.

Night Vision Neighboring Buildings

Home from a night out with friends, I was impressed by the clouds.

Night Vision with Doll Heads

Psycho decoration for jagged re-bar.

Shine Out Dramatic Sky

The sun was shouting out of the sky.

Shine Out Dancing Rainbow Guitar Pick

What is this rainbow pointing to?

I like foggy days. We don't get enough of them in Portland. The rain washes the fog away.

If only we could impale a grinning doll head on every piece of jagged rebar, the world would be a better place. (Is that overselling it? Well, it'd be fun, anyway.)

The "rainbow" is the soul of someone who just died in that car, fanning out into the sky. Oh, I forgot, I don't believe in that stuff. But if I did, that's what it would be.

And here I was thinking it was a low-flying UFO come for that someone!

Ha! To me it looks like a gay mapquest - maybe the drag version of Jem and the Holograms are right there.

I found those doll heads for 25 centavos apiece. I spent 10 pesos and got 40 and even though I still have a bag full I can't help but wish I'd gotten more while I had the chance.

I got the Gil!

I assume you can receive mail at the return address on the envelope...I have a card or two I'd like to send you.

¡Mil gracias! (Gil gracias?)

Ha! Good! Yes, I'm pretty sure I wrote it correctly. Awesome. Real mail is always a treat.
