Follow her down to a bridge by a fountain

One morning last month our friend and champion waxer Michele was riding westbound in a car over the Burnside Bridge, when the morning mists and the rising sun combined to create some pretty wild visual effects coming off the U.S. Bank Tower. Here, straight from her cell phone, are some photos taken through the windshield:

Beautiful... and also spooky.

No problem. The city council just charged them with a sunlight removal fee.

Jack This is a sign!! (think divine intervention) Tomorrow when U.S Bank opens for business, all outstanding mortgages, auto loans, personal lines of credit, and all credit card debt for all Portlanders will be "Wiped Clean"...Yes I know U.S Bank is headquartered in Minneapolis, however, one can only dream!

I can't be the only one who had the thought that the last shot looks spookily like one of the twin towers on a certain tragic day...

I've photo that I shot from my NW apartment when Big Pink was under construction (just fog, no solar effect).

And you guys laughed at me when I installed that asteroid defense system...

My first thought when I saw these:

"Dang it, the Mayans WERE right."

The chrome look compliments of Nike?

"Keep your eyes SHUT, Marion!"

Cosmic Death Ray was supposed to hit City Hall, but they got Big Pink by mistake?
