I took this photo a few weeks ago, then completely forgot to upload it here. This was taken from the east end of E. Pine St., looking south between a couple of houses and out unto the great beyond.
I wonder if I make residents nervous when I do things like that. Fear not, Stayton area people. I promise I’m not taking pictures through your windows into your houses. That would be weird.
Guest photographer Denny Barnes captured this view of Stayton at night. It’s a view those of us in town don’t get to see, and it’s pretty danged awesome. His description:
This is a shot of Stayton after dark on the same night I shot the comet. Lots of pretty lights with the reflection of them in the clouds. I see this sight every time I go to town after dark and never tire of it.
I wouldn’t get tired of it, either. Thanks, Denny!
I like clouds. They’re pretty.
I took this shot by pointing my camera up at the sky and pressing the shutter. It was extremely difficult.
Dog Wash Benefit Today
Do you have a dog in need of a bath? Do you want to support a good cause? D’Tail Pet Grooming will be hosting a dog wash benefit on this very day, from 9am to 5pm, at 1695 W Washington St. See more details on StaytonEvents.com (look under “August 25, Saturday”).
This was taken just after the sun had set. I wish I could have been there a few minutes earlier, but I was at at the Star Cinema seeing “The Amazing Spider-Man” (which was great… don’t forget to stay for the extra seen during the credits).
A note to those who go to movie theaters: don’t be an idiot. The employees at the Star had to delay opening the doors for the evening showing because those who were there before us made a big mess. Pick up after yourselves — no matter where you are — and throw your garbage in a garbage can. It’s not complicated. And to those who left the mess yesterday: grow up. I had to pick up two empty ampm drink cups along 3rd St. last night, too, when I stopped to take today’s photo.
Littering sucks. If you do it, stop it.
This has been an unsolicited mini-rant. We now return you to whatever it is you were doing before.
I took this sunset photo a couple of nights ago, before Mother Nature decided rain was a good idea.
Don’t forget — today is the annual garden tour to benefit the Charles & Martha Brown House (see details on the Brown House web site.
The sky was being rather dramatic a few days ago, with the big clouds, the contrails, and the sun peeking through. It’s like a soap opera in the sky, only it can’t get cancelled and replaced by a so-called reality show. This is reality, and it’s awesome.
