Bright Alignment*

This image was captured outside the Cannery Pier Hotel in Astoria, Oregon. Only after I had taken the photo did I notice the alignment of the hotel's 1939 Buick and the arch in the portico as well as the Astoria-Megler Bridge and the angle of the hotel's overhang. I was also struck by the color gleaming in the gray afternoon and the faint reflections on the damp pavement. The repeating lines and shadows, the way man wrestles with nature and nature echoes back our efforts can be seen again and again in the details here.

I want to time-travel in Astoria with a 1940's car too! This one can really take the viewer places miles and years beyond their seat.
