Guest photographer John Brandt found these hanging birdseed feeders on the trees along a path at Pioneer Park. He was wondering about them…
These things are hanging from most of the trees lining everybody’s favorite walkway in Pioneer Park. My source for bird lore says our birds don’t like the red things in these bird cookies anyway. I’m thinking of taking a nibble myself just to see for myself. I do applaud the impulse however…
I don’t have the foggiest idea of how to properly feed birds. I’ve looked it up in the past and just ended up confused. Interesting subject. Thanks, John!
The other day, I threatened to put up a photo of the backside of a building of which I’d posted a couple of photos (Watch Your Step and Destination). Well, frequent guest photographer John Brandt came through on that front — okay, the back and side of the building right next to it (all part of the same structure, I think), technically — and it’s awesome.
Click on the photo to be taken to John’s Flickr photo page for info on the tile used on the building. Thanks, John!
Guest photographer John Brandt took his iPhone 5 back to the water area of Wilderness Park (which lives behind Pioneer Park), and took these beautiful shots. I love water photos, especially those with tree reflections. Thanks, John!

Guest photographer John Brandt is saving my hide today by letting me use another of his photos. My desktop’s ethernet controller decided to go to sleep and not wake up (seriously, that’s apparently what it’s done), so I stopped fighting it and gave up and went with John’s photo of the side of the city buildings along 3rd Ave. Well, this is the side view around the corner on Ida St.
We had some snow a couple of mornings ago, and guest photographer John Brandt took the photo above along my favorite ditch, which is a man-made waterway. This view is looking towards the Jordan Bridge covered bridge (it is poking out in the middle-left of the photo), which lives in Pioneer Park.
Very pretty, John! Thanks, as always.
Guest photographer Rita Elkins saw this collapsed house and wondered what was up. Turns out, by a check of guest photographer John Brandt’s Flickr photostream (click on the small photo at right to see John’s full-sized photo of the house), that this house on Florence St. is being cleared out for more construction.
It’s sad to see that house go. The Stayton-Sublimity Chamber of Commerce downtown walking tour says the houses in that row were built in 1923 as workers’ cottages (I assume for the mill which used to be by to the houses).
It seems today is Christmas day. I’m actually writing this about a week before Christmas, so I can say with certainty it does not feel like Christmas yet. But it will by the time this posts, because it will actually be Christmas and then it won’t have any choice.
This photo by guest photographer John Brandt encapsulates Christmas here in Stayton — the word “Stayton” and holiday lights. See, they’re together and everything. This photo was taken on 3rd Ave.
