Guest photographer Tom Miller took today’s lovely image of Gilkey Bridge, also known as Thomas Creek Bridge, which span Thomas Creek near Scio. It was built in 1939, and looks quite a bit like the Jordan Bridge here in Stayton. Very pretty. Thanks, Tom!

I managed to go out for a few minutes yesterday to take a few photos, including the one above. I was wandering around the neighborhood across from Bi-Mart on Shaff Rd., and noticed this pond-like bit of water in the middle of some construction. I don’t know if that water is temporary due to the [...]

I thought this house on Mountain Dr. looked rather pretty a few nights ago, so here’s a picture of this house on Mountain Dr. looking rather pretty. A call for guest photographers! This week’s weather is supposed to be pretty bad, which means I likely will be unable to go out and take pictures. So [...]

The Gardner House Cafe on 3rd Ave. was looking pretty and festive a couple of nights ago. It’s hard to believe it’s already time for Christmas lights. Anyone want to come over to my house and put my decorations out?

Guest photographer Melissa caught this lovely moonrise over a pond on Cascade Highway recently. Her description: I took this photo somewhere close to a month ago now after coming home from work. The sun was setting as the moon was rising and it was just stunning. I hurried home and managed to stop [...]

This creative bit of advertising made me smile when I saw it last Saturday. It certainly gets the point across.

Happy Thanksgiving to all who celebrate it! And happy day to everyone in general. I swear I wasn’t going to post another sunset photo today, but then the above happened last night, so I kinda had to change my mind. Blame nature.

Yes, another sunset. Because sunsets are pretty, and it’s what I have to post so I’m posting it. This was taken at St. Mary’s Cemetery on 3rd Ave.

These shoes were hanging from the power lines over W. Hollister St. a few days ago. As you can see, the sole of one of the shoes is dangling down, which left the shoes with a sole sole. So sad. It’s a loss I can feel down in my soul, and they weren’t even my shoes. I posted another photo of shoes [...]

We have another set of “then and now” images for today (see also: Etzel farm — then and now)! Terri Jo Adams, who volunteers at the Santiam Historical Museum, found this old undated photo (top) of the water tower on E. Regis St. Since there’s no date, it makes me wonder how long that star has been [

Guest photographer Tom Miller just has a knack for finding old abandoned houses and then taking very cool photos of them. This is one such house he found near Scio. Thanks, Tom!

This is a bit of the sunset last night. I took the photo at St. Mary’s Cemetery, because frequent guest photographer Terri Jo Adams was concerned all the fog photos I’d been posting had maybe kinda sorta fried my brain a little. There is a slight chance she might be kinda sorta right.

Trees! And fog! Trees in the fog! Douglas-fir trees in the fog! And a little yellow tree, also in the fog! Douglas-fir trees and a little yellow tree in the fog at Pioneer Park! The little tree likely isn’t yellow anymore, though, since I took this a week and a half ago. So sad.
