I took this a few days back, possibly on the south end of 7th Ave., or somewhere in the vicinity. As usual, I’m not sure what type of flower it is. If anyone wants to see a full on view of the same type of flower, please on the photo at right for a bigger version.
I spotted this sign the other day… it wasn’t until I took a closer look that I realized a sticker someone placed on it which reads “we love weed.” I wonder who put that on the sign. No, it wasn’t me, and no, it isn’t my sign. I’m not going to say where I spotted the sign, because I don’t want anyone to mess with it. It kind of makes me giggle.
I went to the twice yearly Stayton Friends of the Library used book sale yesterday, and came away with a big bag full of books. As usual. I loves me some books.
The sale benefits Stayton’s public library, which is a happy by-product of me getting books. Lots of books. Did I mention I love books? Because I love books.
I spotted this yellow car sitting all by itself in the corner of someone’s yard. I don’t know why it was there, but I prefer to think it was over there taking some time out for itself… you know, “me time.” We all need that now and again.
I haven’t a clue where I saw this car… somewhere near 5th or 6th St. I think.
It’s that time of year again — the month of Halloween (here’s the Wikipedia entry, for those unfamiliar with the holiday). Oh, sure, technically, Halloween is one day only, but it’s grown to month-long decorations, and the stores start stocking Halloween items long before that.
I love it. Halloween is my favorite holiday, and I look forward to it every year. The above pumpkins were found outside of Roth’s, a grocery store on Shaff Rd. They have a great display of them each year.
This is my ‘runner up’ photo for yesterday’s City Daily Photo theme day, which was ‘lines.’ The wrought iron fence surrounds the Holm Building, which can be seen in the background. It resides on 2nd Ave.
Today is the October 1st City Daily Photo theme day! This month’s theme is ‘lines.’ I tootled all over town trying to think of how to represent the theme, and finally decided on the lines of the train tracks which run alongside Locust St. Lots of lines to be found there. I’m sure I’m not the only one to use train tracks for the theme.
Tomorrow I’ll post my ‘runner up’ photo… one which didn’t quite work for the theme, but I like it, anyway.
A whole big bunch of other CDP photoblogs are participating in today’s theme day (remember, since they’re all over the world in a wide variety of time zones, different blogs will update at different times). Check ’em out below:

It was mostly overcast yesterday afternoon, but there was a nifty break in the clouds for a little while. I did my best to capture it, though I’m not sure how well it came through. Subtle clouds and sun rays can be tricky to photograph… at least, it’s tricky for me.
I took this looking west from Wilco Rd., near Shaff Rd.
Be sure to tune in tomorrow for the monthly City Daily Photo theme day. Well over 100 CDP photoblogs participate each month.
Since we’re nearing the end of warm weather for the year, I’ve been on a flower hunt all over town. I need to get in as many as I can, don’t ya know. This black-eyed susan flower was found across the street from Pioneer Park.
Be a guest photographer!
I am once again running out of photo ideas for Stayton. If anyone in the area (in Stayton, or any of the surround towns or countryside) have any photos they’d like to share here on the blog, I would be most grateful. You can email them to me at site (at) specialweb.com, along with any info you want posted with the photo, including location, etc. You would retain full copyright, and I’d give full credit, and a link back to your web site, if you have one. Check out previous guest photographer photos if you’re curious as to what’s been posted in the past. Thanks!
This… is a wall. With a crack on it. And a pipe running down it. Or maybe up, depending on how you choose to view it.
It’s actually the back wall of the police station on 3rd Ave. Gosh, how exciting this is. Yep. Uh huh.
