Here is a Roman pillar and arches located in downtown Portland, OR. There is a row of pillars and arches along the streetside of a courtyard across the street from Portland's Saturday Market and Skidmore Fountain. The arches are not part of another structure but stand alone. I don't have a shot of the whole thing.

Scanned 35mm negative.

Fine example of a typical Corinthian capitol. The latest Roman period, as I recall.:-)

Very nice, it's to bad we don't have craftmanship like this anymore!

I'll be danged - didn't know the Romans made it as far as Portland.

As my daughter says - I crack myself up!

Seriously - really nice photograph of finely done architectural detail. I like it a lot, both as a structure and as a photograph.

I'm curious about what is making the faint shadows - are their trees nearby, or other structures?

I am not certain as to the source of the shadows but several possibilities exist: light poles, power poles, poles supporting the electric caternary wire over the street for the Max light rail trains.

I love it...I like the details of a building better than the whole structure. Donna
