Mandolin

Mandolin, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Sneakin’ Out is a local Portland Band that’s fantastic. We enjoyed listening to them yesterday during the Sundays Parkways event in SE Portland. This is the mandolin player of the trio. He’s amazing. I don’t know if I’ve ever heard anyone play as fast as he can.

Percussion

Percussion, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. The Sneakin’ Out percussionist. He’s unbelievable. So talented. Plus, the guy plays a mean typewriter. I’m not even kidding. Check out the shot, at the left, in the middle of the frame. Yep… a typewriter.

Sneakin’ Out

Sneakin’ Out, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. After completing the Sundays Parkways circuit yesterday we rode back to the first park, Colonel Summers, to listen to a Portland band, Sneakin’ Out.  We never miss an opportunity to see these guys if it’s possible to see them.  They are, without question, of the most unique trios around…Continue reading “Sneakin’ Out”

The Ball

The Ball, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. After the game we were invited over to Phil and Steph’s place to enjoy some fine pizza and beer.  It was great spending time with them, Nate, and the kids.  Nate said… it’s like family.   And yes… it is.  What a stellar group of people.  So lucky my momContinue reading “The Ball”

Flies

Flies, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Saturday… soccer game… warm… strange flies appearing out of no where to swarm around the wooden goal post. Luckily the kids were not shooting at this. They had temporary, and much smaller, goals to shoot at. If a person was wearing any bright colored shirt, mostly in the yellow family,Continue reading “Flies”

St. Johns Reflection And Dad’s Day

St. Johns Reflection, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. This is another one taken with the iPhone at Cathedral Park this last Friday. Friday, by the way, would’ve been my dad’s birthday. He would’ve been 66. I kept thinking about him all day, and ended up playing a little bit of his music when I got home.Continue reading “St. Johns Reflection And Dad’s Day”

Evening at Cathedral

Evening at Cathedral, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. So we started off this last weekend with a walk at Cathedral Park with the pups. The weather was nice, and the pups appreciated it. I didn’t bring along my usual camera, so my iphone camera had to do the picture taking. This one is a bit dark,Continue reading “Evening at Cathedral”

Pups as Art

    Pups as Art, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. We went to the park, Cathedral Park, on Sunday. The pups enjoyed their walk, even though it was a little too hot for their longish hair. This is them, posing… well, sort of posing.  That would be Weston on the left and Riley on the right.Continue reading “Pups as Art”

Crossing

  Crossing, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. We went for a stroll today at the pups favorite park… not sure if it’s really their favorite park or we just imagine it to be since it’s fairly close to our place and they always seem to have a good time when they’re there. Either way, and makesContinue reading “Crossing”

The Bench

  The Bench, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. When I see empty benches, no matter where they are, a part of me always wonders who has been there before me? Since this bench was installed… what’s it’s history? We passed this same bench, on a previous walk in Cathedral Park, and a woman was sitting onContinue reading “The Bench”

Monolithic

  Monolithic, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. We went to the Home Show today. Two and a half hours of walking around, getting overwhelmed, and grabbing pamphlets. It was fun… tiring, but fun. Afterwards we headed to Noah’s Bagels on 23rd for a bagel dog. If you haven’t had one, try it. I’d recommend the asiagoContinue reading “Monolithic”

Glass and Steel

  Glass and Steel, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Went for a walk in Cathedral Park today… this is one of several shots I took. I keep experimenting with sepia tones and black and white. I like this one. Taken with a Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT.

Walking

Walking, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Here they are… at the end of their walk this morning. Riley looks a little pissed off, with her ears back and all. Weston looks a little bow legged. But they were both happy and tired. That’s what you want for your dogs. You want them to be happy andContinue reading “Walking”
