I'm an amateur photographer (my camera is a Canon Rebel T2i, with a small variety of lenses) who lives in Stayton, Oregon, USA. Feel free to email me at 'site (at) specialweb.com'.

We have a rather cool looking structure for today’s photo. Guest photographer Tom Miller takes us a bit outside of Stayton to the town of Shedd, Oregon — click on the photo at right to see an up-close shot). His description:
Thompson’s Flouring MillS, home of the famous Boston (Strutting His Stuff) Turkey.
More information about the area can be found on the Oregon State Parks site. Thanks, Tom!
The roses along the edge of the parking lot at Stayton Community Center on Virginia St. have started blooming, which makes me happy since roses are one of my favorite types of flowers. The rose above was one of the perkier of the bunch.
Continuing guest photographer Tom Miller’s effort to brings us some knowledge along with his photos, we have today’s lesson:
I’ve driven by this old building probably a hundred times thinking it looks like a little old school house. Well this time I peeked around inside and noticed it had old tongue and groove floor installed, which was not used in many barns.
So I stopped and talked to an older couple that lives near by, and she informed me that it was the old Oak Glenn School House and she went to school there for eight years. I also asked about the old abandoned homestead (A Place To Call Home) just down the road (Fern Ridge Road) from them, and she told me its the old Glenn Taylor homestead.
Thanks, Tom! I always feel like I know the area a bit better each time you send information like this along.

Guest photographer Denny Barnes has been documenting the changing landscape near his home in the hills outside of Stayton ue to logging in the area (see: Missing The Trees and Loading A Logging Truck). Today’s description:
Thought I had better get some shots of the woods I hike in before they are gone due to logging. This is a four shot pano that is typical of the logging roads I hike on. When these trees are gone I’ll have to walk about a mile further to get to the woods. They are half gone now.
Thanks, Denny, for letting us enjoy it with you, before it’s gone for good.
Guest photographer Denny Barnes lives a little bit outside of town, and he likes to take walks in the woods. The view on his walks has been changing. The most recent update:
How do you load a log truck… one log at a time. This is the logging operation on the hill north of my house about a half mile away. The photos were shot from my front yard and with a large crop they are only so-so but you’ll get the idea. They first remove and hook up the trailer, load the logs, strap the load down and then off to the mill. One section of my walk in the woods is gone now… sad.
Click on each of the thumbnails in order to see the process. Thanks, Denny.
Guest photographer Tom Miller has spoiled us once again with his gorgeous images. This time they are of Breitnenbush River, a tributary of the North Santiam River (read more about it on Wikipedia). He shot these last fall, when the trees were extra beautiful. Thanks, Tom!

It’s been a while since I last posted a photo of the Jordan Bridge — and by “a while” I mean a few weeks — so here’s another, because I know everyone in the entire world was just waiting for it. But at least this one is from a different angle than last time, which makes it completely different.
