We have a new guest photographer today! Katie Staley brings us this beautiful look back at last summer, which is especially nice right since the weather has been so wet around here. Her description:
This was taken in the summer while visiting Stayton Pioneer Cemetery (also known as Campbell-Grier Cemetery). My grandparents and other family are buried there. I love the calm rolling hills.
Thanks so much, Katie! And what a gorgeous motorcycle.
These two Harleys were sitting together in a parking lot on 1st Ave. the other day. So danged pretty.
In other news, the annular eclipse is today. I’m not sure if I will be able to see it, since it very well might be overcast. If I can, I will get pictures, but if you are in the Oregon are and can get a shot and want to share, I would love you forever and ever. Just send it to me at sitespecialwebcom, with your name (as you’d like for it to show on here) and a brief description (including location). Thanks!
These Yamaha motorcycles were parked across the street from the Post Office on 2nd Ave. the other day. I only had a second to take a picture, so it’s not the greatest photo in the world.
My own little Yamaha scooter hopes to one day grow up and be a big motorcycle like these here. It forgets its owner wouldn’t be able to reach the ground on one of these things.
I had an Incredible Hunk Big Wheel when I was a kid. It was cool… until I wore out one part of the plastic wheel because I skidded to a stop too many times.
But this lovely hunk of machinery I spotted in the Bi-Mart parking lot a few days ago is so much better, especially since it has actual brakes. The back seat has arm rests and speakers on either side. You can’t see it in the photo, but there’s a small bear dressed like a biker on the other side. That’s traveling in style. I want one.
I apologize for posting a random photo of a motorcycle, but I haven’t had the opportunity to go out and take photos. I took this one last month in the parking lot of Power Motor Sports between here and Sublimity.
Oh, and happy Independence Day to everyone in the United States. Stay safe out there.
I spotted these two Honda motorcycles in the Dairy Queen parking lot the other day, and thought they were spiffy. So I took a picture. Because that’s what I do.
For the record, I changed the license plate numbers to protect the privacy of the bike owners.
Continuing my fascination with motorcycles, here’s another photo of another motorcycle. I should create a subcategory for them, so I’ve taken a fair amount photos of them.
I spotted this bike outside of Freres Building Supply on 1st Ave.
