I went to the fireworks display downtown Portland as part of the celebration of the Rose festival. You can see some of the pictures I took here, or you can look at the schedule of Rose festival events at their official website here. Since I’m still in the middle of moving; I’m doing all my photo editing for this site on my laptop – which is NOT optimal. Flat-panel displays are still very much lacking in the ability of proper color/brightness/contrast calibration. I’m really hoping to get a new monitor sometime soon because even my old CRT is starting to fade and die. 🙁 But as is, it’s in a friend’s attic right now. :)Anyway, The Rose festival is a really big, mutli-day festival here in Portland each year. It’s shaping up to be some nice weather this year and it’ll be fun to get to some of the events.
