Today’s terribly exciting photo is of some construction equipment sitting next to Norpac Cannery, on the corner of W. Washington St. and Evergreen Ave. And if that’s not thrilling enough, here’s the Google Maps Street View of the wall of palettes found in the background of the photo! Gosh, I hope I haven’t overloaded you with excitement.
It’s time once again to visit my favorite oak trees behind the hospital, off of 10th Ave. The sky in one direction was very grey (or gray, if you would prefer) a few days ago, while the other direction was mostly sunny. It created an interesting mix, with sunlight hitting the trees, but the sky behind them all dark and gloomy.

Guest photographer Aspen Thomas sent me a couple of photos she took with her cell/mobile phone of the sky from two nights ago. The colors in them are interesting… like the sky has been tie-dyed. Here’s the other photo:
Trippy, man. Far out. Thanks, Aspen!

We had some up and down weather yesterday, which resulted in this very pretty rainbow hanging out in the late afternoon sky. This photo is an panorama of the scene… I wish I’d pointed the camera up more, but I had to take the shots very quickly because it was starting to rain. The panorama is comprised of eleven photos put together.
This was taken just outside of town on Fern Ridge Rd., right by where it intersects with Highway 22.

These flags fly over the fire department on Ida St. I don’t have a picture of it, but the back side of the Oregon flag has a beaver, because Oregon is “The Beaver State.” (Insert your favorite beaver-related joke here.) I think it’s the only state flag in the United States to be two-sided.
Correction: I do have a photo of the back. Turns out I took a similar photo back in 2006, and managed to get both sides of the flag that time. Huh. They weren’t the same flags, though, so that makes it totally different. Yep.
New Facebook Fan Page!
I have no idea why, except it was the middle of the night and I was bored and somewhat feverish, but I created a Facebook fan page for this here blog. Introducing the…
See how I made the text all big there? That’s to make it seem more important and exciting than it really is. Anyway, if you have Facebook and are so inclined, like the page. And post to the wall. And start a discussion. And… and… uh, well, you know, whatever.
Guest photographer Keith Curry sent in today’s photo. Spring is a time of renewal, so it’s appropriate to have a photo of water… water refreshes, just like the trees and flowers are refreshed. Thanks, Keith!

Today is this month’s City Daily Photo theme day: statues. As usual, I completely forgot about it until yesterday evening, so I trudged out in a light rain and took this photo of a Madonna statue on the grounds of the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church on 6th Ave.
The statue wasn’t lit when I was there (10:30pm), so this is a 56 second exposure to compensate for the lack of light. I chose this particular statue for the simple fact I couldn’t think of any others in town. And it was 10:30pm, so I couldn’t exactly go tootling around town to try to find others. That was the biggest factor of all, really. Did I mention it was raining?
A whole bunch of other City Daily Photo bloggers are participating in today’s theme day. Click on the link below to check ‘em out:
