Only in Portland, Oregon will you see this on Easter Sunday. 🙂
No, not real gold, but gold to plants and animals here in the Pacific Northwest. I’m talking about water. We get the routine sort of rain gardeners strive for, nice even drizzle. It’s not like the rains in the Southeast where we would get “Frog Strangler” downpours, but instead it’s a steady misting sort of rain that nourishes plant to grow everywhere. We don’t need no sprinkler systems here. LOL 🙂
Little did I realize that Saturday, the day before Easter, would bring 15,000 visitors to the Portland Zoo. I discovered there was a huge easter egg hunt to celebrate the holiday. Most of the kids brought their baskets to collect the goodies. I had to find ways around the crowd that gathered in the huge field in from of the elephant stage. It was fun getting photos of the little kids.
I walked by this old weathered wooden door with a heavy duty lock on the front. Not only did I keep the whole door but I isolated that interesting lock & latch as a picture in its own right. Keep in mind, all these photos were taken with my little Sony NEX-5N mirrorless camera with a Sony 55-210mm F/4.5-6.3 lens onboard. 🙂
