Saturday in the park, I think it was the 21st of March… sorry, old Chicago song reference there. Anyway, these people had the right idea on Saturday, taking their dogs for a walk amongst the pretty spring trees. The post A
It made me rather happy to see all these lovely tulips in bloom a few days ago along 2nd Ave. I took a photo of them last year, too, when the flowers were a bit further along. The post Somewhere In Time appeared first on
A guy on a bicycle passed by me yesterday when I was taking photos on 2nd Ave. yesterday. I think he had the right idea, since it was unexpectedly quite nice yesterday. The post Bicycle Man appeared first on

To celebrate the first day of spring, I decided against posting another photo of tree blossoms, and instead am posting a photo of tree blossom buds. Totally different. The post The Future appeared first on
Yep, tree blossoms. Again. Deal with it. The post Spring Bouquet appeared first on Stayton Oregon Daily Photo.
I went out on a limb today and decided to post something other than a tree blossoms photo. That’s right, these flowers were on the ground. Totally different. I don’t remember if I know what they are, but I found them at Pioneer Park. The post
We have another lovely tree blossoms photos from guest photographer Maryann Nielson today. Thanks, Maryann! The post Requiem appeared first on Stayton Oregon Daily Photo.

For the five or ten of you who actively follow this blog, you might be wondering if all I know how to post are spring tree blossoms. To that, I answer: YES. They are pretty, and they are what I’ve found to photographer, so live with it until I am tired of them or they […] The post
Once upon time, there was a bee in some tree blossoms at the Neitling Park area of Pioneer Park and it buzzed and did bee things until it flew away. The end. The post Got A Bee In My Bonnet appeared first on

As the perfect compliment to yesterday’s guest photographer photo of the fountain at the Capitol Mall in nearby Salem, guest photographer Maryann Nielson throws her hat into the ring with two gorgeous shots of the very same fountain. Check out that rainbow! Both Maryann and Hugo were there on the same day, taking p
Guest photographer Hugo made me a happy camper by sending along this gorgeous shot of the fountain at the Capitol Mall in nearby Salem. His description: Although not exactly Stayton, I thought you might be able to use this. The weather was so warm on Saturday, that they turned on the fountains at the State […]
Guest photographer Su Yoder took her dogs out to the Santiam River a few days ago and took today’s adorable photo near bridge heading south of town. Thanks, Su! By the way, I stole the title for this photo from our mutual friend, Randy. The post
These two trees on 3rd Ave. make a rather pretty statement that it’s spring, whether the calendar agrees with them or not. Think of all the the flowers in those trees… so many little pretty flowers grouped together to create one large display. Pretty nifty. The post
The tree fungus photos from yesterday’s guest photographer post inspired me to take today’s photo of some stuff growing on a tree on the corner of 4th Ave. and Fir St. I have no idea what kind of fungus it is, but it looks like clam shells to me. The post
Guest photographer Jon Goodman brings us photos of some fungi he found on a hike he went on above Sweet Home. I tried to take pictures of something similar on a tree here in town, but all the photos are blurry. It makes me extra happy to have these cool photos. Another one is below. […] The post

Guest photographer Maryann Nielson brings us today’s photo of an awesome little man-made waterfall-ish thing by the water treatment place (or something) by Riverfront Park. Very pretty. Thanks, Maryann! The post Falling Water
I went out to take pictures yesterday, and my scooter decided to stop working properly at the first place I stopped. I don’t know how long it will be before I can get it fixed — money’s a bit of an issue at the moment, and the scooter is my only transportation — so I […] The post
Another tree blossoms photo, just because it seems like a good way to welcome March. The post Elemental appeared first on Stayton Oregon Daily Photo.
Guest photographer Denny Barnes sent me these gorgeous night sky photos about a week ago, and then I forgot, so I didn’t get them posted. I am so good like that. So, with my apologies for being a dork, here are his photos. The first one (top) shows the moon, and Venus and Mars make […] The post
I found this little one on a sidewalk the other day, and I wanted to kick myself for not having my macro lens with me so I could get a proper shot. This photo is heavily cropped, and not as sharp as it should be. I found it on a sidewalk along Marion St. The post
Guest photographer Maryann Nielson made me one very happy camper by getting these photos of the albino squirrel at Pioneer Park. I first learned of his or her existence last month when Terri Jo Adams spotted him from a distance. This is so cool. See Maryann’s second photo below. Thanks, Maryann! The post
I was at Bi-Mart on Shaff Rd. yesterday, and they had some tulips out for sale. I didn’t have my DSLR camera on me, so I took today’s photo with my cell phone camera. It’s pretty amazing what those things can do nowadays. The post
In my ongoing effort to make the colder parts of the country jealous of my area’s unseasonably warm weather, I bring you: tree blossoms. I had to really look, but I spotted a tree along 10th Ave. sporting some blossoms, and despite the wind, I managed to get this photo of two cute little flowers. […] T
