Can someone tell me what this is. Some power generator of some kind?
it's the site of the old powerhouse which generated the very first long-distance transmission of electricity in the US, about 10 miles to Portland, back in the late 1800s.
I'm not certain that's where this is, but it sure looks like it.
The day the Singing stopped
I did not vote for it because I found it JUST WRONG. I learned to sew on my great-grandmother's treadle. A great photo but JUST WRONG.
I'm not able to decide which one is best, they are all so perfect and perfectly DIFFERENT.
so this time I'm not voting. One vote for all!!!
I love ones where it's hard to figure how they were done, but they all have great artistic merit.
#1 could be called: What is "old" is "new" again! (Wind Power) I voted for it because of the beauty and composition.
