The Tillicum Bridge is Portland's newest; dedicated to pedestrian, bike and public transportation only. It is a beautiful modern bridge and much admired by us all. On this day though I was interested in some of the new architecture and sculpture that has sprung up on the west-side.

Finally I turned to the bridge...the sun had highlighted some of its cables to a brilliant white. I wish I was able to do it justice but it is a challenging subject. I suspect that I will try again however....!

Our latest sketchcrawl was in solidarity with our Portland sketchers who are at the the USK Chicago Symposium. A small but determined group of Portland sketchers gathered at Union Station to sketch the pedestrian bridge there.
