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 …

I am really annoyed with myself for not posting this image sooner. I took it on August 5th, when the red barn along Cascade Highway between Stayton and Sublimity was either under construction or being torn down — I have no idea which, as I haven’t been back by. I …

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 …

As a good follow up to the photo I posted yesterday of a smoke column over what I assume was a controlled field burn, guest photographer Patrick brings us a field after it’s been burned. It’s pretty interesting how the burn circled that little building. Patrick’s description: I went out …

This big column of smoke was hanging out in the northern sky yesterday afternoon. I assume there was a controlled field burn at a nearby farm, but I’m not sure. I didn’t go chasing after the source. This was shot with my cell phone, as I didn’t have my regular …

These two tractors were traveling down the road the other day on Stayton Rd., just barely outside of Stayton city limits. They’re twins! Who knew tractors could be cute like that? That’s right, I said they’re cute. Because they are. Really.

Guest photographer Terri Jo Adams caught a bit of the sunset with her cell phone a couple of nights ago, and wanted to share the loveliness with us. Click on the thumbnails below to see the larger images. Thanks, Terri Jo!

Farm stuff! This random farm along Stayton Rd., just outside of Stayton is growing… something! It’s a plant, or maybe a tree! And it has trailing wheels to keep it going in the right direction, which is adorable. I think it’s pretty obvious I am extremely knowledgeable (no, I’m not) …

Because I tend to forget details of things, I can’t remember if I knew what this new bit of construction at back part of the grade school will be. Anyone know? It’s bigger than it appears in the photo, as it seems to be all part of the same structure.

At least, I think this is a corn field. I am no expert in such matters. Either way, it’s some sort of crop in some sort of field at some sort of farm along Stayton Rd., just outside of Stayton.

Guest photographer Denny Barnes sent this to me a handful of days ago, but other things came up, so I didn’t have a chance to post this beauty until now. His description: Did you happen to see the moon tonight (August 3rd)? With the haze we had today it made …

Turbo is guest photographer Terri Jo Adams’ dog, who was outstanding in his field (insert rimshot here) in the photo. Terri Jo’s description: I like to call this “Turbo with Angry Sun watching” ….. on top of that, the sky sorta looks a little tee’d off also. . . dog …

I visited my friend Theresa at her shop, D-’Tail Pet Grooming on W. Washington St., and I brought along my camera because I would be stupid to pass up all the cute animals. I did, however, forget to bring my flash, which wasn’t very smart of me. The cat above, …

Last night was this month’s First Tuesday in the Park and the National Night Out gathering in nearby Sublimity, so I went over there and pointed my camera at various things and pressed buttons. Through a process I really don’t understand, pictures magically appeared and I have put them down …

We have more lightning images today (see also: Denny Barnes’ images)! We had a loud thunderstorm the other night, and guest photographer Jim Mullholand caught some fantastic images. His description: At about 11:30 Thursday night I heard some thunder so went to look outside. Too my surprise I saw alot …

We have a new guest photographer today! Chuck Martin submitted this beautiful photo via the site’s Facebook page. His description: The last July sunset. Overlooking the beautiful Willamette Valley. Taken at the South entrance to Silver Creek Falls. Simply beautiful. Thanks, Chuck!
