Here’s a shot of some random person riding their bike along the path at Neitling Park.
Are you following Stayton Daily Photo on Facebook? I am, but it would be weird if I didn’t, since it’s my page and all. The page recently hit 300 likes, which isn’t bad for a small niche site like this one. Thanks to all who have liked the page.
I went by Neitling Park (was is the official designation of that part — is it a separate park, or is it part of Pioneer Park? I don’t know). The two parks (or one park), which are side-by-side (or all together) has a new disc golf course, which involves Frisbees, throwing, and goals like the one you see in the photo.
My friend Theresa Smith (she of D’Tail Dog Grooming, on the right) was there with her husband and friends, plus the adorable Mr. Wilson (the golden retriever dog, that is, though all the guys were quite handsome).
I have to confess I didn’t think the disc golfing thing would get used, but in the short time I was at the park(s), I saw three separate groups using the course. That’s what I get for thinking. I do try to avoid it.
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!
This is why I love spring — it’s so danged colorful. The bright pink trees in front of the Jordan Bridge at Pioneer Park couldn’t have been prettier yesterday.
I took a similar photo last year, but from further back along the path.
This little guy — not sure if it’s a hoverfly or a bee, though I would guess a hoverfly — was hanging out on a lawn daisy at Neitling Park the other day. It was quite tolerant of me sticking my camera in its face long enough for me to get this shot, then it crawled to the underside of the flower to hide.
The Jordan Bridge, a covered bridge at Pioneer Park, is probably my favorite Stayton landmark. I’ve taken and/or posted pictures from others of it any number of times. Of course, Stayton is pretty small, which does narrow down the field, but still… it’s awesome.
The pink tree blossoms across the street at Neitling Park do a nice job of framing the bridge. I posted a similar photo to this back in 2009, but this new one was taken at a lower angle, so it’s totally different. But still similar. In a different way. And I went with a warmer color balance, which may or may not be better. Or just different. Differently better. Badly different. Hmm.
Plus! There’s a bonus photo at right, so click on it to see the bridge from a different perspective.
Spring. It’s actually here, more or less. The weather made it up into the 60′s yesterday at my house, which is pretty awesome.
I took today’s photo at Neitling Park, where a few of their blossom trees are blooming in all their glory. I love those things.
