(point and shoot series)
We took a MAX ride field trip today...all the way out to IKEA...where we had just enough time to grab a $1 lunch and a $1 cone before getting back on the MAX to get home in time for swim team practice. The whole trip basically took four hours! We did get off at the wrong stop once, when we needed to change trains, which added about a 15 minute wait. We did get to ride a "Type 4" MAX, which made Ethan's day. I should have taken more photos, but even though I only carried the point and shoot with me, I felt a little funny shooting random things. If I'd had it up and ready, I could have taken a shot of a policeman on horseback in downtown PDX!
In this shot, we are waiting for the MAX to get moving.
