Portlands "Big Pink"


I am posting to another new meme today. Ruby Red Tuesday!!! This picture is of Portlands second tallest skyscraper, the US Bankcorp Tower. It is also known to the locals as the "Big Pink", due to the pinkish reflection of the sunlight off the windows that you can usually see. But sometimes it appears shades of purple, orange, grey, or in this one, almost ruby!!!

That is a beautiful building! I would never get tired of looking at that.

Very nice and rosy! I pass through Portland several times a year, I'll have to keep my eyes open for Big Pink the next time I'm there!

I also like looking at this building. It's one of my favorite things on the Portland skyline.
