Guest photographer Su Yoder caught this intriguing sight of steam rising up off a fence as the ice melted yesterday morning. The ice-tinged plant in the foreground adds a nifty element, too. Thanks, Su!
Guest photographer Maryann Nielson took this simply beautiful photo of an autumn leaf stuck in a fence. So cool. Thanks, Maryann!
Please help find Stanley the therapy dog!!
A therapy dog from Santiam Hospital went missing earlier this week, so if you’re in the area, please be on the look out for him. He’s an 85 pound labradoodle. Click on the thumbnail at right to see what he looks like. Contact info is on this Craigslist ad, and there’s a Facebook group with several photos of Stanley.
The Facebook page announced there is a $5000 reward being offered. Please help find him. Thank you.
I don’t know when this gate and sign went in on the land by the newish pedestrian bridge off of Florence St. I first noticed it two days ago, but I don’t go down that direction. I knew it was private property, but I’d seen people wander through there a lot. I guess the property owners noticed it, too.
Hey, a fence! And it’s all wiry and stuff! Cool! This particular wiry fence is at the edge of a farm field across the road from where I shot yesterday’s image, just outside Stayton city limits.
In other news, I have some guest photographer images I will be posting, so stay tuned for those.
Long-time followers of this here site thing might be aware of my love for these two awesome oak trees. They live at the edge of a yard on a side street behind the hospital, and I’ve taken many photos of them in the past.
I noticed a fence company staking out the place the other day, so I wasn’t surprised to see a fence going up when I went by yesterday. I was relieved to see it’s a wrought iron fence, which doesn’t detract from the view that much. I was afraid of a six-foot wooden fence blocking both trees. If they have to put a fence there, this isn’t so bad. Still, I’m going to miss the unadulterated view of the trees.
