the essence of summer in portland

Actually, roses take the cake, when it comes to a flower that defines summer here in "The City of Roses". But poppies, to me, have always been a sign of warmer weather.


This image was made with a Hasselblad 500 C/M. Below we have Ponytail Falls (Hasselblad 500 C/M as well) and a walkway in San Diego (Zero Image Pinhole).


The "old photo" extravaganza continues...
