We have a new guest photographer today! Katie Staley brings us this beautiful look back at last summer, which is especially nice right since the weather has been so wet around here. Her description:
This was taken in the summer while visiting Stayton Pioneer Cemetery (also known as Campbell-Grier Cemetery). My grandparents and other family are buried there. I love the calm rolling hills.
Thanks so much, Katie! And what a gorgeous motorcycle.
Guest photographer Jon Goodman was worried I was tired of photos of the recent hoar frost. As if. This photo is gorgeous, so I didn’t not hesitate to post it. There are two more I will be posting in the next few days, as well.
This was taken at an old pioneer cemetery off Anderson Rd., near Sublimity. Thanks, Jon!
While I was at the St. Boniface Church in nearby Sublimity over the weekend, I also went to the cemetery across the parking lot from the church. I didn’t stay long (it was hot and I was very tired), but I did get this photo of a statue marking the graves of three of the former pastors of the church. I’m going to have to go back to the cemetery when I have more time, as there are several interesting markers there.
Today is Memorial Day here in the United States (see the Wikipedia page for more information). For the holiday, U.S. flags are traditionally placed on the graves of those who served in the military. The flags in the photo, shot yesterday at Lone Oak Cemetery on the corner of 3rd Ave. and Fern Ridge Rd., were but a few of the flags on display.
I managed to get out of the house to go to the store yesterday, which coincided with yet another sunset photo from me. But! I have never taken a photo of this particular sign before (in fact, I hadn’t even noticed it existed until yesterday), so that part’s new. Yay. Obviously, this was taken at St. Mary’s Catholic Cemetery on 3rd Ave.
This isn’t what I intended to post for today, but my desktop computer (where I do all my photo editing) is presently out of commission, so I’m making do until I can fix it. I took this sunset shot from Lone Oak Cemetery on the corner of 3rd Ave. and Fern Ridge Rd.
It was foggy yesterday, so I had intended to go by Lone Oak Cemetery to see if I could get some photos. I didn’t end up doing that, though, since a funeral was in progress and I thought it would be rude to go traipsing about with my camera while that was happening. I did get this photo of a hearse sitting nearby before I left.
