Cool public art next to the Columbia Slough and only a stone's throw from the sewage treatment plant; an old garage on Willamette Blvd that I've been lusting after ever since I first noticed it during a Bridge Pedal; and a very autumnal view of the harbor and downtown from the bluffs.

Last Friday I went on a meandering ride from the Expo Center, at the end of the Yellow line near the Columbia, across the peninsula to the Willamette bluffs. Along the way I found some interesting public art along with the expected industrial detritus (photos forthcoming), and I also got a look at some neighborhoods that I rarely visit. I was most taken, however, by the many padlocks that have been secured to the chain link that covers the bike/ped bridge over Going just west of Interstate. I had completely forgotten that the bridge was even there, and was only slightly more surprised to find such a compelling example of poetic intervention in a space that most people probably travel through quickly and without reflection. It's worth a visit. I plan to add a few locks of my own one of these days.

Seen on Halloween at about 1am near N Williams and Beech.

And... Happy Halloween indeed!
