Guest photographer David Nielson of StaytonEvents.com sent along this gorgeous photo of a house and field full of beautiful yellow flowers he shot north of nearby Sublimity. Thanks, Dave!
This old house and car on 7th Ave. made for an interesting retro scene the other day. I believe the car says it’s a Ford Galaxie 500, which probably means it’s from the 1960’s. I have no idea how old the house is.
Want to help a kitty?
My cat, Butler, is very ill right now with a kidney problem, and his medical bills have really added up. If you happen to have a few dollars to spare, could you help me get him well? I’ve set up a GoFundMe page. So far, his bills have come to about $1200, of which I’ve already paid around $500. He and I thank you for your consideration.
I’ve also uploaded several images to a Fine Art America gallery, if you would like to buy a print or greeting card. All funds raised would go directly to Butler’s medical bills. Thank you.
And a huge thank you to Santiam Veterinary Hospital for their hard work in getting Butler on the road to recovery.
Guest photographer Tom Miller says this about his photo:
Just another snow photo of the old abandoned house just outside of Stayton.
I call it pretty danged cool. Thanks, Tom!
By the way…
Happy New Year’s Eve! If you are going anywhere tonight, please, please, please do not drink and drive. Use a designated driver or take a cab. It’s not worth the risk to yourself or anyone else. Have fun, but be safe.
I thought this house on Mountain Dr. looked rather pretty a few nights ago, so here’s a picture of this house on Mountain Dr. looking rather pretty.
A call for guest photographers!
This week’s weather is supposed to be pretty bad, which means I likely will be unable to go out and take pictures. So if anyone has any photos of the Stayton area they would like to share, I would love you forever. Please see the Contribute a Photo page for details. If you have any trouble with the form, please email the photo and other details to me at celinechamberlingmailcom. Thank you!
This was the view looking north from the Lone Oak Cemetery on the corner of 3rd Ave. and Fern Ridge Rd. a few days ago. You can’t see it in the photo, but Highway 22 bisects the image, right behind that line of trees behind the houses. I believe those buildings on the upper left are part of a farm between here and nearby Sublimity, which is just beyond the hill.
The hill looks a lot close than it actually is, since there’s a neighborhood, the highway, and some flatter land between where I took the picture and the hill itself.
Guest photographer Denny Barnes brings us today’s photo of beautiful autumn color. His description:
Finally getting a little color at my place. My coral-bark tree usually comes out bright yellow but this year it’s more orange than yellow??? I’ve noticed a lot of the trees in the woods this year are a little different in color and slow to come on. Could be our dry and warm early fall is causing it. Anyway, we are starting to get some good color now.
That’s interesting about the change in color. Nature is so danged fascinating. Thanks, Denny!
