I noticed the other day the Red Apple Lounge on 2nd Ave. has a new color scheme. And by “new,” I mean it could have changed sometime in the last two or three years and I am just now noticing it, or it could have been last week. I have no idea. But it used to be much different. So I took a picture of one of the side doors. The colors are a bold choice, and certainly grabs one’s attention. Eventually.
I was at the A&W restaurant on Washington St. the other day getting my root beer float fix, and thought this sign that hangs over their counter was pretty nifty. They have good root beer, so they must be doing it right.
This is not a sponsored post (none of the posts on this site ever are). I just like the root beer.
This cute Christmas display is on one of the windows at the Covered Bridge Cafe on the corner of 3rd Ave. and Marion St. The cafe is just down the street from the Stayton-Jordan Bridge, a covered bridge at Pioneer Park.
I tried not to over-expose the signs, but since the building and street were so dark, and I had to compromise. This is already two full stops under what my camera thought it should be. In retrospect, I could have taken two photos (one exposed to the signs and the other exposed to everything else) and combined them later, but it was raining and I was in a hurry, so I didn’t think of it.
I’ve posted photos of this building before, but they changed a sign on it (the red one on the corner of the building is new), so that calls for another photo. It wouldn’t, normally, but I’m kind of desperate for photos at the moment.
One of these days, I’m really going to have to go inside this place.
This was taken on 3rd Ave., in historic downtown Stayton.
This Rumours Restaurant & Lounge building always intrigues me… it has lots of lighted signs to look at (click here for more photos I’ve taken of Rumours). I don’t think I’d ever noticed this little sign on the side of the building before, but I liked the contrast with the black of the building and the light-colored door. I couldn’t quite get the detail of the sign right, since the lights inside it distort the lettering.
I took this photo of a nifty old
Ford Chevy (thanks for the correction, Mel!) truck sitting outside of the Fey Asian Chinese restaurant last month, and completely forgot it existed. I was happy to find it, since I haven’t been out to take photos in almost two weeks, so I’m having to scrounge to find photos. But, hey! If you want to submit a photo of the Stayton area for this here blog thang, then that would be rather awesome.
In “oh wow I just realized this” news, the 30th marks the fourth anniversary of Stayton Daily Photo. That’s pretty amazing, since I never expected to last a year, let alone four. I have absolutely nothing planned to commemorate the day, since I just remembered. Hmm.
This white bench sits outside Rumours Lounge on 3rd Ave. I liked the contrast of it against the black wall.
I would like it be duly noted I have managed to go almost a week without posting a flower photo. It hasn’t been easy on my part, and I will likely crumble and post one tomorrow. You have been warned.
I would also like to note I’m changing the update times on my posts. I have been posting at midnight (Pacific time), but I think posting a bit later might be better. Less likely to get lost in the middle of the night, I hope. How does 5am (Pacific) work for you?
