Portland Art Museum

After arriving yesterday at my cousin Mahlon’s home in Portland, we decided to drive by car first to downtown Portland and visit the Portland Art Museum to explore the travelling exhibit called “The Allure of the Automobile.” Afterwards we drove east to Mount Hood, where we enjoyed lunch in the Timberline Lodge, before returning to Portland along the Columbia River. You can read my travelogue report for that excursion here. Needless to say there were many more interesting automobiles and scenery to photograph than I was able to include in that travelogue report.

Since the day’s outing consists of two distinct parts with numerous photos from each one, I have spread them across two pages. The current page contains photos from the exhibit. The photos from that excursion are on the page “Mount Hood & Columbia River.”

Since flash photography was prohibited inside the exhibit hall of the museum, the lighting was marginal at times and thus some of the photos may be darker than usual or slightly out of focus. The darker images were lightened up on the computer. The museum’s spotlights also caused numerous bright reflections from the vehicles.

In the following map the red arrows show our complete route. (Click on the map to enlarge.)
