L is for Locks

I spent the weekend up in Seattle a while back and really wanted to visit a few places I hadn't been in years.  One of those places was the Ballard Locks.  Boats are constantly passing through between Puget Sound and Lake Union so there is a lot see.  Also certain times of the year salmon are running through the fish ladder and you can actually watch them as they swim through.

The 'Salmon Waves' sculpture by Paul Sorey was one of my favorite sites (photo 3) at the Locks.

K is for Keller Fountain

The weather here in Portland has finally started to show true signs of Spring.  Because it rains all the time you really have to savor these sunny warm days even more!  I took the sun for granted while living in Phoenix and now I finally understand why everyone is outside the minute the clouds break and the temperature goes above 65 degrees.

I shot these photographs of Keller Fountain after walking around the waterfront area.  It was a perfect day outside!
