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 …
