To the north, historic development in a Spanish region. To the south, urban design fuelled by Spain’s real estate boom. 
Urban growth in Spain is seriously disjointed. We take a look in more detail in our latest post.

Seaside, OR
We seem to be living in an endless summer, so I suppose it’s ok to keep posting these swimsuit photos.

There’s a lot of dumped bicycles in Amsterdam. Maybe this is what the city could do with them?!

Today this little blog, which was launched bout 6 months ago, hit 1000 followers.




This has given me new hope that in this disposable society, people still have some interest in remembering the past. Over the past 6 months this blog has been used to accomplish a growing number of goals and I strive to keep a balance of gravity in my subject matter.  Here is what I’m trying to accomplish here:

 1) To honor those who came before us
 2) To acknowledge that PNW history is not filled with only roses and progressive thinking.  Unbelievable oppression and crimes against humanity have occurred here.  It’s up to all of us to remember the past and learn from it.
3) To celebrate all that is unique about this region

4) To encourage people to set forth on a local adventure, in the true spirit of the Wild West.  Head out and explore this region.  Go to a town you’ve never been before.  Talk to the people there.  Examine your surroundings.  We spend much too much time on-line.  Get out there and touch the world.

“After reading his [John Updike’s] prose, any of it, a line here and there, I have to go through a long reassessment of my own aims, with what is limpid in my style, with my distaste for the vernacular, my exactitude, my long twilights, my scenes, my confinement, in expressing love and death, to…
