We have another photo from guest photographer Terri Jo Adams. Her description:
We have the most interesting fence post finials here in Stayton….. almost lifelike!
I adore squirrels. Thanks once again, Terri.
Guest photographer Terri Jo Adams sent in today’s photo, taken close to nearby Turner. Her description:
This was taken from a series of photos I’ve snapped called “I am Terri’s Windshield”, and are just various shots from around the valley – no special camera – just my little Sony 7.2 megapixel….no special lens either. This particular one is the view you see when you crest Olney Rd coming from Witzel near Turner. I’ll try to get a better one another time, this day the clouds obscured the beautiful view to the East of the mountains.
I have another photo from Terri Jo to share in the next day or two. Stay tuned.
Guest photographer Patrick in today’s photo, taken a few days ago at the World Beat Festival held in nearby Salem. His description:
I went to the Salem World Beat Festival yesterday and saw this photo coming from forty yards away. The hard part was timing the photo without showing their full faces but still capturing their individual shade sources.
I love it… great capture, Patrick.
I apologize for yet another sunset photo. I haven’t been able to go out and take photos much lately, so I’m presently stuck with a whole lotta nothin’. I’ll try to get a little somethin’ as soon as I can.
That last sentence sounded a lot more innocent in my head.
This photo was taken on the corner of 3rd Ave. and Fern Ridge Rd.
We have a new guest photographer today! Terri Jo Adams sent in today’s lovely image. Her description:
I was visiting my dad’s grave just after a storm passed through and caught a neat rainbow over Lone Oak Cemetery in Stayton. Just after I got this picture, the skies opened up again!
Thank you, Terri Jo, for sharing this moment of peace with us.
I wanted to buy a tree the other day, so I went to Yarnell Grower’s Outlet on 1st to get it. I didn’t really expect anyone in town to have this particular tree, but they had not one, but four. It was rather awesome.
I didn’t take my camera into the nursery itself (I wasn’t thinking at all, apparently, and should have my head checked to see if it contains a working brain), so here’s a photo of the side of the building. I posted an overall shot of the building, which is a large red barn, back in 2007.
These colorful t-shirts were for sale outside of the Jensen-Kreitzer Clothing store in downtown Stayton on 3rd Ave.
In other news, don’t miss the 10th Annual Garden Tour tomorrow (the 27th) from noon to 5pm to benefit the restoration of the Brown House. Visit the Brown House’s web site for more information. I don’t think I’ll be able to attend this year due to family commitments, so if anyone has photos to share of the event, I would be most grateful.
Guest photographer Jon Goodman sent in today’s photo of something I’d never seen. The photo was taken where E. Santiam St. meets Highway 22 just east of town. Jon’s description:
Another in my series of disappearing old landmarks. This is a piece of the old North Santiam Hwy that was replaced by Hwy22 back in the 60’s? Grass and weeds reclaim more and more of it every year.
I’ve never been able to explore this area on my scooter, so I especially appreciate Jon offering up this view. I think I’ve found the right spot on Google Maps Street View, if anyone is interested. I’ve pointed it at where I think the old road lies.
Holy fudgecicles, it’s another sunset photo. I didn’t want to do it, but I don’t have anything else to share at the moment. Well, that’s not entirely true — I will have a guest photographer photo to share tomorrow, once I get a bit more info on the photo’s location.
As usual, this photo was taken at the corner of 3rd Ave. and Fern Ridge Rd.
