“Cultural Day” by Richard F. Yates

[All photos by me. The owl in this image is on the roof of Shattuck Hall at Portland State University. I love grotesques and gargoyles—and some day I’ll get a REAL camera so I can take better photos of them! For now, I do what I can with my phone! —RFY] Last Thursday (aka: Halloween),Continue reading ““Cultural Day” by Richard F. Yates”

“George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic @ The Oregon Zoo, 10 Aug. 2019” by Richard F. Yates

“No Exit” by Richard F. Yates

This is a digitally modified photo I took, recently, (at the Cowlitz County Fair) of a “dark ride” (which seemed to have some minor rollercoaster elements to it.) I didn’t catch the NAME of the ride, but I loved the blacklight effects and the “horror show” aesthetic. Unfortunately, I didn’t TRY the ride, but itContinue reading ““No Exit” by Richard F. Yates”
