Guest photographer Maryann Nielson spotted this cool scene of a tree and its shadow on one of the walls of the Mason Lodge on 3rd Ave. Thanks, Maryann!
We had some beautiful sun a few days ago, but the last couple of days have overcast and dreary. Guest photographer Denny Barnes may have noticed a correlation:
This shadow appeared on my shop a couple days ago but has now done a disappearing act. Yes, back to rain and of course I just washed my car. Hope this lost shadow comes back soon!
I hope it comes back soon, too. It’s too cool to be hidden by the lack of sun. Thanks, Denny.
This is one of the photos I took as a possible shot for “the color blue” November 1st theme day photo. The shadow is of me sitting on my now dearly departed scooter. The backdrop is a blue dumpster. I’m now tempted to throw my scooter in that dumpster, but I won’t. It’s not a total loss, just too expensive for me to repair.
On a different note, Ham at London Daily Photo is raising money for Breast Cancer Care. For more information on supporting this worthy cause, please visit the link at above.
This is Neitling Park, a cute little area with paths and trees and grass and more and trees and grass. It sits right next to Pioneer Park, and I think of it has the quieter, more peaceful cousin of Pioneer. At least I do now, since I just made that up.
As a side note, I’d like to wish my mother happy birthday. So happy birthday, Mom! She would very likely kill me if I posted her picture here, so I’m not gonna. My mother didn’t raise a dummy, after all.
Stayton has moved firmly into autumn. Days of clouds and rain are more frequent than sunny days. It makes me appreciate the sunny days more.
The photo above shows the gate door at the back part of the carport attached to my house, with sunlight streaming in through the spaces between the boards. The sun also cast two small rainbows on the cement of the carport’s floor, but my photos of those didn’t come out. The smoke you see in the photo is from the engine of my scooter.
