Great photography, Eric.

A grand old brick electric utility building that’s coming down soon. The massive segmental arched windows and projecting cornice with a row of modillions add a nice touch of class to the old boy. 118 years on this site! What will fill the void? #portlandgeneralelectric ... See MoreSee Less

I know my view is in the minority, but I found the much heralded design by Frank Gehry a bit too gimmicky. Too consciously asymmetrical for my taste. What do you think? #guggenheimbilbao ... See MoreSee Less
