Jeff Shultz captured (with his camera) this lovely pair of mallard ducks in the water next to the SCTC buildings on 2nd Ave. I tried to get a shot of them the other day, but the lighting was all wonky, so I failed. Thanks, Jeff!

Guest photographer Maryann Nielson caught this lovely morning sky yesterday. So that’s what it’s like to get up at daybreak. Thanks, Maryann.
I have more guest photographer photos to post, but thought I would interrupt all that to bring you a photo I took of a door. Yes. This particular door exists on a building on the south end of 3rd Ave. I think it’s on an auto parts store. I really …
Guest photographer Tom Miller went to the outskirts of Salem (more or less) to get this shot of the Macleay Country Store. I’ve never seen it, so this is extra cool to me. Thanks, Tom!
This is too cool. Guest photographer Tom Miller caught this bird (a duck?) in flight at sunset. Thanks, Tom! HEY, PEOPLE, HEY! I changed the layout of this here site thing. There are still things which needs to be tweaked, and they will be tweaked, once I commence the tweaking. …
These are scary times, friends. Guest photographer Terri Jo Adams brings us this terrifying story: I took this picture out at my mom’s house on Kingston-Jordan yesterday. Looks like the walnut tree, which up to this point had always been such a benevolent soul, has turned into a swing-eating monster…. …
I found these lovely deep purple crocus flowers hanging around outside one of the SCTC buildings on 2nd Ave. a couple of days ago. They look like people with giant mouths gaping upwards. “Feed me!” is what they are saying. Trust me on this.
Guest photographer Terri Jo Adams documented the sun’s efforts for us yesterday. Her description: I could feel the sun trying its hardest to warm up our little corner of the world, but the clouds are thwarting its efforts. Poor Sun. Poor Us. It will happen soon, Terri Jo. Spring is coming. [...]
Guest photographer Terri Jo Adams spotted this poor balloon stuck way up in a tree. That’s so sad. Somewhere someone is missing this balloon, and I bet that balloon is missing its human friend, too. If you’ll excuse me, I have to go hug a balloon. Not too tightly, though, because then it would pop [...]
I have important news, friends. What may look like a mild-mannered sprinkler hook-up thingy near the south end of 3rd Ave. is actually an alien. I’ve passed by this creature any number of times without even noticing it, but a few days ago, I stopped and I saw. Look at it looking back at us. It is [...]
Guest photographer Tom Miller brings us this cool photo of a nifty barn. His description: This little old barn sits along the Cascade Hwy between Stayton and Silverton. The house has been empty for awhile, not sure why. Thanks, Tom!
Look, spring crocus flowers! In bloom! I think perhaps possibly maybe this means we might see spring sometime eventually. Because flowers! Yay!
I was very happy to see the City putting in curb ramps on the corners of Hollister St. and 3rd Ave. a few days ago. As someone who rode a little handicap scooter down that street (and others) for many years, I can speak from experience how difficult it was to have to go into the road to go around [...]
Now this is something I’ve personally never seen. Guest photographer Jon Goodman found a newt while out walking. His description: This is Newt Figton, I found him while walking behind the (Pioneer) park along the canal. I was surprised as I’ve never seen one there before. Very cool. Thanks, [...]
Guest photographer Denny Barnes compliments yesterday’s sunset photo with another view of the same night. His description: Here’s another shot to go a long with Dorothy’s photo of the sunset last night. It only lasted about 5 minutes but was sure pretty while it lasted. I don’t think I’ve ever
I had planned on posting another snow photo for today, but then guest photography Dorothy Loftin sent me this, and there went that idea. I couldn’t pass up posting this. Thanks, Dorothy!
Guest photographer Denny Barnes sent this adorable photo of an adorable sheep out in the adorable snow by an adorable fence, from back when it was still adorably snowing. Adorable. Thanks, Denny.
Guest photographer took this gorgeous photo of the Mt. Pleasant School near the Kingston area not far from Stayton. This would make a great jigsaw puzzle. Thanks, Tom!
Here’s another photo from our big snowfall we had last week. This motorcycle was parked on a street near my house, and pretty much blended in with the surroundings. Of course, with as much snow as we had, everything ended up blending in eventually.
Guest photographer Tom Miller captured this adorable sign of a little tree house in the snow just outside of Sublimity. Thanks, Tom!
This photo by guest photographer Denny Barnes of these birds on a bird feeder in his yard looks like a painting. It’s just so idyllic and… well, painterly. That snow falling around them is just gorgeous. Thanks, Denny! By the way, Happy Valentine’s Day to everyone everywhere. I was going to get [...]
Here’s another winter snow/ice photo from guest photographer Maryann Nielson. I love close ups of things like this… the way ice wraps around things like that is nifty. Thanks, Maryann!
Guest photographer Denny Barnes has one of the best seats in the house when it comes to getting scenic views. He lives in the hills just outside of Stayton, and this was the view a handful of mornings ago outside his office window. So danged pretty. Thanks, Denny! Speaking of guest photographers, [...]
We have another new guest photographer today! Vicki Doucette took this absolutely gorgeous shot of the Jordan Bridge, the covered bridge at Pioneer Park, in the middle of all the snow we’ve had in recent days. It looks like the stream underneath the bridge was iced over, too. Thanks so much, [...]
Guest photographer Su Yoder took this picture of the Stayton High School on Locust St. a few days ago. It’s hard to tell what’s what, with all that white stuff. It’s hard to believe Stayton saw so much snow. It’s finally starting to melt some, but it’s still all over the place. And, of course,
We have a new guest photographer today! Ruth McWayne, wife of another guest photographer Greg McWayne, sent in a couple of photos she took of a robin’s nest in a tree in her neighborhood in Sublimity. As she put it, there’s “No room for birds!” The snow saw to that. Click on the thumbnail at right [
Guest photographer Maryann Nielson brings us this photo of a snow-encumbered car. If I’m not mistaken, this is our friend Car. You may remember Car from a photo I posted of him a week or two ago. Well, as you can see in the photo, his situation has changed, and not for the better. Just look at all [...]
We had several inches of snow yesterday, and guest photographer John Brandt caught this beautiful sight at Wilderness Park. Thanks, John!
This shed lives on the Stayton side of Fern Ridge Rd., right by where it meets Highway 22. I thought it looked nifty with the snow and those awesome trees behind it. ATTENTION ALL LOCAL PEEPS If it snows today, I won’t be able to go anywhere to take pictures except my own little neighborhood, [...]
What with it being the middle of winter, we here in Northwest Oregon experienced an immense amount of snow yesterday. As you can see from the photo above, it almost kind of sort of obscured part of the grass and made the trees appear to have a bad case of dandruff. I zipped around town during this [...]
