A few of the trees at Pioneer Park are in bloom, so this is my attempt at getting the Jordan Bridge framed by one of the trees. It’s not quite what I wanted, but I haven’t figured out how to bend the earth to my will yet, so I had to settle for what was available.
This little bridge is the driveway to the house locally known as the castle, probably my favorite house in Stayton.
Guest photographers needed!
I haven’t been feeling well lately, and haven’t been able to go out and take pictures. I could definitely use your help! If you’re interested in contributing here, please see the Contribute a Photo page for details. You would retain the copyright on your photo(s) and receive full credit. Thank you!
If you’ve seen the movie “Inception” you know it was involved a dream within a dream within another dream within some crazy hallucination-fueled trip involving chimpanzees and a heck of a lot of Gatorade. At least, that’s how I remember it.
Today’s photo is of a street bridge in front of a pedestrian bridge, taken from another street bridge. So it’s pretty much the same thing as the movie, only with fewer hallucinations. This was taken at the south end of 4th Ave.
Here’s another photo from last month, when the autumn trees were still in full effect. This was taken on 2nd Ave., at the little foot bridge by one of the Stayton Cooperative Telephone Company buildings. The picture comes complete with a random guy in a cowboy hat. What a deal.
I apologize for not having more recent images to post, but the weather was really wonky, and lately I haven’t been feeling well enough to go out and take pictures. I’ll try to rectify that as soon as I can. If you’re interested in being a guest photographer, I’d love to post your photo! Please see the Contribute a Photo page for details. Thanks!
I went down to the pedestrian bridge off of Florence St. yesterday, and met Steve and his granddaughter on “poop patrol,” as he called it. They go out periodically to clean up after people’s dogs, which I thought was pretty awesome.
My favorite landmark in town is this covered bridge, The Stayton-Jordan Bridge, located in Pioneer Park. I’ve posted many photos of it, but it seems a fitting photo for today, because…
Stayton Daily Photo has turned six years old!!!
Which is strange, really. When I first started, I had no idea what I was going to do with it, or even why I started it. But here we are. Six whole years of posting every single day. Whoa.
I’ve only missed two days, I think, and those were because I mistyped the dates when I scheduled their posts. One of the biggest reasons I’ve been able to continue this for so long is because of my guest photographers. Around 300 photos have been because of them, which is huge.
So… thanks to everyone who has been involved in this little blog. Let’s see what kind of year this one will turn out to be, eh?
I’ve taken pictures of this bridge before, but here it is again. It’s a pedestrian bridge put it last year to create easier access to Riverfront Park. It’s orange because the bridge itself was reclaimed from elsewhere, and the metal on the bridge has been exposed to the elements for many years.
I took this 15-second exposure of the Jordan Bridge at Pioneer Park a couple of nights ago. It didn’t come out quite like I’d hoped, because there’s a very bright street light to the left of the bridge which really messed up the sky. I did my best to remove the effects of it, but you can still see the odd color in the sky on the left side.
Yep, another photo of the new pedestrian bridge off of Florence St. It’s new, after all. But this time I took a shot of the inside part of the bridge. Totally different.
I thought I was more centered when I took this shot. That’s what I get for doing my own thinking.
