Downtown Portland: Grace Notes

baskets of acanthus leaves support a fire escape.

In a storefront:
autumn leaves of burnished metal hang.

plaques bear famous quotes.

On a building flank:
maps of polished stone mark Oregon's high places.

Nestled among bricks:
pine boughs on bas-relief tiles.

In a second-story window
stained glass rosettes shatter evening light.
