The power went out at my house yesterday evening, and since I apparently lack the ability to do anything not involving electricity, I decided to go out and get some photos of the sunset. Thank goodness for battery-powered cameras, which I actually had charged.
In other news, there’s another free outdoor concert tonight in downtown Stayton. The Once A Month Band will be playing on the corner of 3rd Ave. and Florence St. at 6:30pm. I’m hoping I’ll be there taking pictures. If so, I’ll post them here tomorrow.
Guest photographer Terri Jo Adams brings us this moment of zen:
I just love the sunset over this grove of firs across the road from my house… makes me feel that all is good in the world…..
It’s a lovely site. Thanks, Terri Jo!
These shoes hanging from the power and/or telephone lines in front of the Circle K convenience store on Washington St., near 3rd Ave. a few days ago. I wonder how many tries it took to get them to stay up there.
I feel obligated to include a “do not try this at home” warning for those who may be tempted. Messing with power lines is never a good thing, and can be downright dangerous.
To any parents in the Stayton area who might be wondering what happened to their child’s shoes… well, good luck getting them down.
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!
