Guest photographer John Brandt took today’s photo of a rather foggy park the other day. He also sent more photos of some downed trees at the park I will be posting, once my brain gets into gear so I can think long enough to organize the post, so that could be some time next year. Thanks, John!
Today we have a joint effort between me (the photo above) and guest photographer John Brandt (the photos below). There is construction going on at the Jordan Bridge, a covered bridge at Pioneer Park. They’re fixing something or other (I’m so good with details) to make it not fall down and go boom.
Click on the thumbnails below to be taken to John’s Flickr page for each photo. And thanks to John for the photos and for the post idea.
The Jordan Bridge is closed for some much needed repairs (read the Statesman Journal’s article about it here). Guest photographer John Brandt took this picture of the fence and sign blocking traffic until it has been fixed. It’s sad to have it blocked since so many people use it each day, so I hope it gets fixed soon.
Guest photographer John Brandt found this window somewhere in town, but he’s not saying where. But he offered up this by way of a clue:
It’s visible from a city sidewalk along a city street and it has to be within a twenty minute walk from where I live because that’s my personal “Morning Stayton” Flickr set criteria.
That narrows it down to pretty much anywhere in town, but I would guess it’s somewhere in the northeastern section. Or not. Thanks, John.
Guest photographer John Brandt took this pretty photo of the poetically-named Stayton Ditch on a cold, frosty day last month. Thanks, John!
Guest photographer John Brandt caught this cool (and cold) scene in Wilderness Park recently. His description:
Taken at the pond on the east end of Wilderness Park. The pond is an old gravel extraction barrow pit. I was told it had been operated by one of the Staytons. I think his name was Cliff but that could be wrong.
The things you learn, eh? Thanks, John!
Yesterday, I posted a photo by Jeff Shultz showing a building on 2nd Ave. with a recently removed side structure. I lamented not having photographed it before it was torn down.
Fortunately, guest photographer John Brandt has a picture of it, so here it is for today’s post. You can see how rickety it was. Frankly, it’s surprising it lasted as long as it did.
Be sure to click on the image to go to its Flickr page, where John’s posted a fair bit of interesting information about the building. Thanks, John!
