Rain, Rain, Go Away

It's still raining in lovely Portland, Oregon. I wonder if some kind of record is afoot? With the continuing rain the street gallery was a no-go last week. I was disappointed when I came to the realization that I wouldn't be attending this month but was glad not to be in the thick of the heavy rain that began to fall in the evening.

I was originally attracted to this image of a bird because it looks like some kind of angry, stout seagull. I like seagulls, and crows for that matter, because they're scrappy little scavengers by nature (human element?). This bird's a Laughing Jackass. When I look at it now I feel like it's smart beyond its status as bird, that its furrowed brow relays some kind of provoked rage or hostility towards its immediate surroundings or maybe the world at large..
