Please scroll down to see today's dahlia, Swan's Desert Storm, from Swan Island Dahlias.
Happy Birthday, Lamont!
On my lunch hour I hurried to the bus, then hurried from the bus to the sidewalk along the river. I wanted to be sure to get some photos of The World, docked on the west bank of the Willamette. More about The World soon.
Anyway, I'm walking along, gawking with lots of other folks when I hear an amplified voice and look around to my right. I see this row of people being led by a diminutive woman calling out their exercise routine. Naturally I swung the camera up to my eye and clicked!
The grass has been worn out by the Rose Festival's Waterfront Village. It closed up shop just four days before I took this photo.
