McDonald's Restaurants throughout the Portland, Oregon area are remodeling inside and out. Each remodel is different. Although this one located in Hillsboro, OR, looks like a corrugated steel shack from the Pacific, it really is a McDonald's.

Minolta S414, Auto

Cal,

A Minolta s414? What happened to your Nikon?

Very interesting shot of the New Mickey Ds. I hope they don't get rid of all the Golden arches. Sometimes I think we go overboard and throw out the baby with the dishwater far too frequently. Without those Golden Arches what we will have to tell our grandkids.

Aloha

The arches are making a comeback but they don't look as good as the original ones from back in the 50s and 60s. They are more round and "fatter".

I still have the Nikon but I carry the Minolta in my briefcase most everywhere I go. The D100 takes much better pictures but the small size of the S414 makes it handy for those situations where you don't have time to mess with the "big camera"! BTW, for those who haven't heard, Konika-Minolta is getting out of the digital imaging business. They will stop manufacturing digital cameras sometime in March.
