Portland - 2014

Mozilla had a "coincidental workweek", meaning everyone had a workweek on the same week, in the same city. That city was Portland, Oregon, and the week was the first in December. Things were seen.

A chibibi curtain

The chibibibis hanging out at the Crumpacker family library. Literally!

The chibibibis and Pericles

Not too happy with the quality of the shot, but the chibibibis look so happy.

Can you hear me now?

Because plain old radio comms. dishes are ugly, right?

The invariable gate

Actually, no. They usually vary a bit, but some are appropriate, and some are not. Portland's China town... really didn't need one. It's pretty much a deserted wasteland of "why would anyone want to be here". Even if you have a destination in China town, the journey through it is just depressing.

Do not cross

London tries to kill you. Portland wants you to live.

Just no

For historical reasons that don't matter, I know pi to 18 digits. This trivia almost never comes up, but it came up at Washington Park station in Portland, OR, because that is not the decimal expansion of π, which is 3.141592653589793238... so I have no idea what this number is supposed to be after the first line...

Leaving portland

The Lan Su Chinese garden

Not very big, but certainly enjoyable enough, the Lan Su Chinese garden is in Portland's China town. Getting there is depressing, but being there is relaxing.

The chibibis, posing

The chibibibis love posing for pictures when we're at gardens, or zoos, or outdoors, or...

Oh no, chibibifox!

Chibibifox fell while posing for a picture! He was very confused and growly about the ordeal. He likes rolling around, but didn't like this at all.

Just some colour

I'm not happy with the quality of photos taken by the Fujifilm X20, and this shot is an example of why. I still like the spot of colour, but not the photograph that renders it.

Reflections

Only back home did I realise this shot could have been better as a pure reflection. Oh well.

Om nom nom~

Maokun loves bamboo leaves, as rightly all red pandas do.

2014-12-06 15:08:57

...nom nom

In fact, it was nearly impossible to keep maokun away from all the bamboo!

kaki

The persimmon tree was laden with bird and squirrel attracting fruit. Scrub jays and grey squirrels were spotted.

Verdant moss

I just liked the colours. Moss carpeting is always super nice to see, feel, and photograph.

Squirrel!

Did you know "Up!" was five years ago? Eventually we'll stop saying "squirrel!"... but not just yet.

More squirrel

I always love upshots of animals in trees. Especially when the animals decide not to move around too much. Have some more squirrel!
