Here’s a long exposure of some car head and tail lights from two nights ago. I took this on 3rd Ave., facing the north end of the street. I had to wait a while for enough cars to go by to get some decent light trails. I don’t know why the street lights did that streak thing they did.
I went over to the Santiam Hospital on 10th Ave. last night to take a long exposure of the newish tower. It’s something I’ve been meaning to do for a while, but never got around to it until last night. A car ended up going by when I took this shot, and I liked the streaks the lights made. It also helps cover up the wonky focus on the building… not quite sure how I messed that up, but the only thing really in focus is the upper corner.
Apparently, I attracted some attention at the hospital, since a security guard stopped by to ask what I was doing. It’s understandable that people were curious, and the guard was polite. Still, I don’t think I’ll be going back anytime soon to get a better shot.
Guest photographer Terri Jo Adams attended the car show at the Jordan Chicken Dinner even in nearby Scio yesterday, and took a whole bunch of awesome images of the awesome cars on display. I made a little slideshow thingie which you can peruse through and see all the pretties. Thanks, Terri Jo!
… With a camera, that is. Guest photographer Denny Barnes caught these turkeys turking around near his house. His description:
Seeing your birds the other day which I think may be starlings, thought I’d send a couple of shots of my birds this morning. You’ll have to excuse the quality because they were shot through my office window which is not the cleanest, plus a window screen, low light and heavy rain. You get the idea. The tom was shot a few days ago but through the same window…
View more of the turkeys below. Thanks, Denny!
Guest photographer Chuck Martin took this beautiful sunset image from Berry St. in nearby Sublimity. I recognize those irrigation pipe wheels from a photo I posted not long ago.
