The title of Anna’s (Flutter and Hum) Wednesday Vignette this week is In Pursuit of Grey. We were wandering around downtown the other day, when I was moved to take some shots that celebrate grey. The above gnarly tree roots bordered by cement on all sides is in NW Portland near Fish Sauce restaurant (which, unfortunately, was closed between lunch and happy hour but it’s a favorite of my son).
We parked across the street (anticipating a yummy late lunch that was fated not to be) where I spied this pebbly wall criss-crossed by climbing Hydrangea vines.
There was evidence of leafy goodness to come, but in the meantime I was charmed by the symphony in grey.
Some lovely greys, besides the ones in the sky? The pebble-texture underneath the hydrangea stems is an added bonus. You missed a yummy lunch, but we got some eye candy out of it. 🙂
We got our yummy lunch elsewhere, but let’s hear it for grey eye candy.
Grey’s fine just not the sky – please!
I hear you!
The last sentence made me smile.
Always happy to be able to coax one of those radiant smiles from you, my friend…not that it is very hard to do.
Excellent vignettes of grey! I’m glad that Anna added a theme. I’ll try to join in soon. I like this meme!
I don’t always fall in with her theme but was ready for this one. I’ll be watching for your contributions.
Fish Sauce? Now that’s an interesting name for a restaurant. Fab greys, too!
I should have photographed their sign…it’s classy.
Fabulous tree roots.
I don’t know how happy they are, but they do look cool. There are lots of these around town.
