Guest photographer Patrick took a picture of something I’d been meaning to investigate, but hadn’t succeeded. His description:
I was driving north on Third the other day and happened to look over at the bus loading area at the grade school. I saw the ribbons on the chain link fence, saw a break in the rain clouds behind them and just had to pull over for a photo. Seeing your photo of St. Boniface with that beautiful sky behind it reminded me this morning that I had sky photos in the can that needed to be looked at.
Nice shot, Patrick. Thanks!
Guest photographer Patrick went looking for a found some beauty where one might not expect to find it. His description:
I found your post with the poppies rather coincidental, for yesterday I was thinking of you as I walked along the Pacific Power ditch where the trees had been removed. I remembered your post about their disappearance and share your sorrow over the loss of those trees. Yet, I managed to find some beauty within the “ruins.” Kinda what life is all about sometimes, no?
That it is, Patrick. Thank you.
Guest photographer Patrick spotted some very pretty cars out there in the wilds. His description:
When I saw these two cars parked side-by-side, I thought of you. Tis the season when a lot of these vintage cars start showing up in town. Yet, these cars also remind me of my childhood for we at one time had a ’56 Bel-Air and a ’65 Mustang (although I didn’t check for the year on either of these). The shot has a lot of glare, fittingly corresponding with the
haziness of memories in those cars.
A great time for cars… I especially love the Mustang. Thanks, Patrick!
Guest photographer Patrick couldn’t have taken a more perfect photo for the leap day today. his description:
I was over on Wilco Road today to see a huge flock of geese land in the grass field across from Roth’s. After they settled in, I walked out to get them going again for this photo op. I am just grateful they did not circle back above me.
Great job, Patrick!
Yep, I’m still posting snow photos, despite the snow having melted days ago. Snow doesn’t happen around here often, so I like to take full advantage of it when it happens.
Besides, when guest photographers like Patrick send in such pretty photos, what else am I going to do? So here’s another snow photo from Patrick (see also: From The Back Porch). Thanks, Patrick!
The great big huge snowfall of January may be but a memory, but that doesn’t mean I can’t post more photos of it, possibly until spring. Guest photographer Patrick sent in a few very nice photos, one of which I will run today. Another will go up tomorrow. His description:
We had a little more snow than you did in town. I woke up a few mornings ago to about an inch and a very nice sky. If I were painting the scene instead of photographing it, I would have used a lot of purple. These photos were taken from and on our back porch. The one of the chair looks like someone in need of a head.
Guest photographer Patrick brings us today’s photo of some scarecrows. They can be found in a large field along Cascade Highway, near where it turns into 1st Ave. This field floods every time we get some good rain, and yet I’ve never been over there to photograph it when it turns swampy. I should do that one of these days. Thanks, Patrick!
Guest photographer Patrick has had some visitors in his yard recently. His description:
This is a flock of turkeys that have been visiting us since they were unceremoniously shooed out of a Christmas tree field during harvest.
At least they aren’t on the run from being put on a table for Christmas dinner.
Today begins a guest photographer week of sorts. I will away from my computer for a handful of days (not sure how many yet), so some of frequent guest photographers have agreed to supply me with photo goodness while I am gone.
First up is one by Patrick of a tree harvesting helicopter resting amongst some Christmas trees. Oregon is the largest grower of Christmas trees in the US, and it’s environmentally friendly because the trees are grown on farms, and are replanted after the grown trees are harvested.
I’ll have more photos from Patrick later in the week.
