Guest photographer Terri Jo Adams caught a bit of the sunset with her cell phone a couple of nights ago, and wanted to share the loveliness with us. Click on the thumbnails below to see the larger images. Thanks, Terri Jo!
Farm stuff! This random farm along Stayton Rd., just outside of Stayton is growing… something! It’s a plant, or maybe a tree! And it has trailing wheels to keep it going in the right direction, which is adorable.
I think it’s pretty obvious I am extremely knowledgeable (no, I’m not) about farm life. I mean, I’ve been on a farm and saw some cows or maybe they were pigs, so yeah, I know things (no, I don’t).
Guest photographer Denny Barnes sent this to me a handful of days ago, but other things came up, so I didn’t have a chance to post this beauty until now. His description:
Did you happen to see the moon tonight (August 3rd)? With the haze we had today it made it very red. Took the dog out for her last potty run and saw how red it was so I had to grab some shots.
Turbo is guest photographer Terri Jo Adams’ dog, who was outstanding in his field (insert rimshot here) in the photo. Terri Jo’s description:
I like to call this “Turbo with Angry Sun watching” ….. on top of that, the sky sorta looks a little tee’d off also. . . dog didn’t notice all that, they’re great at living in the moment … Anyway, I took this Aug 5th – I believe all of the angry-ness stems from the wildfires burning all around the state. I’d be angry too.
Yup, so I would I. Thanks, Terri Jo!
I visited my friend Theresa at her shop, D-‘Tail Pet Grooming on W. Washington St., and I brought along my camera because I would be stupid to pass up all the cute animals. I did, however, forget to bring my flash, which wasn’t very smart of me.
The cat above, the absolutely adorable Milo, is the shop cat. I’m fairly certain Milo runs the whole place, and Theresa works for him. I know I would work for him. Look at that face and tell me you wouldn’t.

Last night was this month’s First Tuesday in the Park and the National Night Out gathering in nearby Sublimity, so I went over there and pointed my camera at various things and pressed buttons. Through a process I really don’t understand, pictures magically appeared and I have put them down below for you to see. Wait, I didn’t “put them down,” they aren’t… oh, never mind. Just scroll down a bit.
The park was filled with people who came for some good BBQ, to watch the Once A Month band, see a police dog demonstration, and to shop the various vendor booths.
We have more lightning images today (see also: Denny Barnes’ images)! We had a loud thunderstorm the other night, and guest photographer Jim Mullholand caught some fantastic images. His description:
At about 11:30 Thursday night I heard some thunder so went to look outside. Too my surprise I saw alot of lightning to the southwest of Scio and it was getting closer. I grabbed my camera & tripod and went out in the backyard where I have a pretty decent view. I couldn’t believe how much lightning there was. I started shooting as many strikes as I could. Most of the shots were exposed for 15-30 seconds. It was a perfect storm to get a lot of lightning photos. A very rare display of nature’s fury over the Willamette Valley.
Let’s enjoy the rest of the images Jim sent. Thanks so much, Jim!
