These shoes were hanging from the power lines over W. Hollister St. a few days ago. As you can see, the sole of one of the shoes is dangling down, which left the shoes with a sole sole. So sad. It’s a loss I can feel down in my soul, and they weren’t even my shoes.
I posted another photo of shoes on power lines a handful of months ago.
We have another set of “then and now” images for today (see also: Etzel farm — then and now)!
Terri Jo Adams, who volunteers at the Santiam Historical Museum, found this old undated photo (top) of the water tower on E. Regis St. Since there’s no date, it makes me wonder how long that star has been perched on top of the water tower. It used to be lit every year, with white lights on the star and red lights on the “S.”
The bottom image is one I took of the water tower a couple of nights ago at sunset. The tower looks pretty much the same, with the exception of the stuff at the top to make the water tower do double duty as a cell tower. My photo was taken at a different angle, and of course, that cool looking moon wasn’t to be found.
Thanks, Terri Jo!
This is a bit of the sunset last night. I took the photo at St. Mary’s Cemetery, because frequent guest photographer Terri Jo Adams was concerned all the fog photos I’d been posting had maybe kinda sorta fried my brain a little. There is a slight chance she might be kinda sorta right.
Trees! And fog! Trees in the fog! Douglas-fir trees in the fog! And a little yellow tree, also in the fog! Douglas-fir trees and a little yellow tree in the fog at Pioneer Park! The little tree likely isn’t yellow anymore, though, since I took this a week and a half ago. So sad.
Guest photographer Tom Miller decided to contribute to my recent rash of fog photos with his own foggy photo of St. Boniface Church in nearby Sublimity. And a fine photo it is. Thanks, Tom!
I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking, “I really should work out more.” Sure, but what’s that have to do with today’s photo? Nothing. You’re not very helpful at the moment.
Here’s what you should be thinking: “Hey, Celine posted yet another fog photo! This is so exciting, I might faint!” Do you see the difference between the two statements? Look closely and read them several times, if necessary. Are you through? Good, let’s move on.
This photo was taken on a very foggy day! Like all of my previous photos (with one exception) from the last week. Because fog is cool. And there’s nothing like beating a theme into the ground. I took this particular photo next to the pedestrian bridge off of Florence St.
