Guest photographer Maryann Nielson caught some beautiful light at the Jordan Bridge, a covered bridge at Pioneer Park. My, but I do love that bridge. Thanks, Maryann!
Guest photographer Maryann Nielson brings us this lovely bit of autumn at Bush Pasture Park in nearby Salem. Look at all that color… beautiful. Thanks, Maryann!
Want to help a kitty?
My cat, Butler, is very ill right now with a kidney problem, and his medical bills have really added up. If you happen to have a few dollars to spare, could you help me get him well? I’ve set up a GoFundMe page. So far, his bills have come to about $1200, of which I’ve already paid around $500. He and I thank you for your consideration.
I’ve also uploaded several images to a Fine Art America gallery, if you would like to buy a print or greeting card. All funds raised would go directly to Butler’s medical bills. Thank you.
And a huge thank you to Santiam Veterinary Hospital for their hard work in getting Butler on the road to recovery.
I’m still trying to find trees with autumn-colored leaves, but the trees just aren’t cooperating yet. This big tree in the Neitling Park section of Pioneer Park is starting to turn, so here’s a wee bit of autumn.
It’s going to be raining for the rest of the week, apparently, so my autumn leave hunt will likely be on hold until the weather clears.
I seem to be on a run of green stuff in recent days days, so here’s another one. This is a from a random tree at Pioneer Park.
A plea for guest photographers!
I haven’t been feeling well this past week, and haven’t had the opportunity to go out and take pictures (which, unfortunately, means no appropriate image on this anniversary of 9/11). I could really use the help of guest photographers, so if you’re interested, please let me know. See the Contribute a Photo page for details. Thank you!
Today we have a joint effort between me (the photo above) and guest photographer John Brandt (the photos below). There is construction going on at the Jordan Bridge, a covered bridge at Pioneer Park. They’re fixing something or other (I’m so good with details) to make it not fall down and go boom.
Click on the thumbnails below to be taken to John’s Flickr page for each photo. And thanks to John for the photos and for the post idea.
Just as the title says, I have been waiting for these trees to bloom at Pioneer Park so I could get this shot of the Jordan Bridge. I’ve done similar photos before (see: Dreaming, Invitation, and This Is Why I’m Here), but I think I like this one the best. And when I do it again next year, I’ll probably think the same thing, and I’ll look back at this one and wonder why I didn’t do better. Okay, I’ve already started doing that. But it will be worse a year from now.
