Guest photographer Denny Barnes’ hummingbird feeder has had some interesting visitors lately. Denny’s description: My hummers have shrunk..LOL. The last few days my hummers have had some competition. So far they seem to be getting along OK. Don’t know where these little guys came from but there sure is a l

Guest photographer Jim Mullholand captured this beautiful sunset last night. We’ve had a lot of smoke in the air from area wildfires for the last few days, and yesterday was especially bad. But I’m glad we can still find the beauty in such a situation. Jim’s description: Smoke from the …

Guest photographer Maryann Nielson caught this awesome sight of a tractor kicking up a lot of dust in a farm field between Stayton and Sublimity yesterday. Thanks, Maryann!

I went down to the park and ride off of Cascade Highway, just north of Stayton, and spotted this pretty boy or girl getting some food in the swampy pond thing nearby. I think it might be a great blue heron, but I also might be wrong. This photo is …

I don’t get over to nearby Sublimity all that often, and I’m not exactly known for being the most observant person in the world, but I can’t remember having seen this sign before. I hadn’t realized that Sublimity is well over 100 years old, having been incorporated in 1903. That’s …

There was a lot of construction-oriented activity at the back of the grade school (facing 3rd Ave.) yesterday when I went by. Lots of people doing lots of things. It was good to see. I hope they get through with everything soon.

I seem to be on a run of green stuff in recent days days, so here’s another one. This is a from a random tree at Pioneer Park. A plea for guest photographers! I haven’t been feeling well this past week, and haven’t had the opportunity to go out and …

I’ve posted photos of this view from the pedestrian bridge off of Florence St. before, but it’s pretty, so here it is again.

There were a mass of black cows in a field near the Harvest Festival grounds on Sunday (you can see the big tent and stands at the festival grounds in the background). There are but a few of the cows. I think they’re some sort of gang. Good thing there …

I popped by the final day of the Sublimity Harvest Festival yesterday to see the monster trucks. Boy, are those things loud, big, and cute. I know, they’re supposed to be tough, but all I can see is some kid running miniature versions around in the dirt in his or …

It’s so darn green at the creek by the library on 1st Ave. right now. It’s not bad for a little man-made ditch, eh?

Literal post titles are literal. This is my favorite barn in town (honestly, how many barns are there in town?), so I’m once again posting a photo of it. This was shot from the pedestrian bridge off of Florence St.

When I was down by the pedestrian bridge off of Florence St. the other day, someone’s dog was lying on the ground chewing on a stick. So I took a picture. This is the picture. It would be weird if it weren’t.

Guest photographer Terri Jo Adams spotted these cars “patiently waiting for destruction at the Sublimity Harvest Festival 2014.” It’s good they’re at peace with their fate. Speaking of the Harvest Festival — I’m not sure I’ll be able to attend this year. I will be having a bunch of

Just a random alley for today. It runs between Hollister and Pine St., between 1st and 2nd Ave. It’s a pretty alley. That little tunnel bit near the middle is across Pine St., to another part of the alleyway, I think.

This is one of the views of the water which runs underneath the Jordan Bridge at Pioneer Park. Nature’s pretty.

Guest photographer Maryann Nielson caught this lovely sunset the other night. Thanks, Maryann!

I don’t know when this gate and sign went in on the land by the newish pedestrian bridge off of Florence St. I first noticed it two days ago, but I don’t go down that direction. I knew it was private property, but I’d seen people wander through there a …

While construction at the various public schools is ongoing, apparently all three will be opening on time, according to StaytonEvents.com. That’s great, despite this rather large bit of construction going on at the back of the grade school. This somewhat poorly constructed panorama (ignore the boo-boos) tries to show

The old museum on 3rd Ave. is now Stayton’s courthouse. It opened last month, but I wasn’t able to attend the opening. So, here’s a photo of the outside, which looks a lot like how it looked when it was still the Santiam Historical Museum. Speaking of the museum, it’s …

A few days ago, I posted an old red barn from 1951. Today we have a very similar barn just down the road on Stayton Rd., which I’m guessing was built around the same time. I didn’t see any date written on this one like I did the last one, …

This photo as a story. Well, not the photo itself, but how it came to be. My telephoto lens died recently when I was shooting a sunset image. I couldn’t afford to replace it, so I figured I’d do without for a while until I could. But last night, some …

I’ve posted photos of this bridge (and the one I was standing on when I took the photo) before. But I like it, so here it is again.

This nifty old red barn on Stayton Rd., just outside of Stayton, has ’1951′ written on the front, so I’m guessing that’s when it was built. It looks pretty darn good for its age.

This wee little one (either a bee or hoverfly) was foraging for food on the face of a sunflower the other day. He was quite willing to stay put for a few photos, which was quite nice of him. I think we bonded that day.

This light pole next to the Holm Building on 2nd Ave. looked rather pretty with those beautiful hanging flower baskets on it. It’s like the pole is waving a couple of pompoms and is getting ready to do a cheer.

The Queen Anne’s lace flower grows all over the place here — any bit of land not regularly mowed likely sees it crop up during the summer. I’m perfectly okay with this, as I think they’re beautiful. I took this photo along E. Virginia St., where a lot of the …

I went to the car show at the A&W Restaurant on Washington St. last night, and took way too many photos, as always. Click on the thumbnails below to see the bigger versions.

I spotted these blackberries growing wild near the water off of the east end of Water St. the other day, next to the Mason lodge. I didn’t eat them, though. I’m not a berry person.

And now we know. Yesterday, I posted a photo of a barn between here and Sublimity either undergoing construction or being torn down. Guest photographer Maryann Nielson happened to take a picture of it two days ago, and sent it to me. I’m sure the owners had their reasons for …
