My friend Roger tipped me off on Facebook about some deer hanging out off of Shaff Rd. yesterday, so I went to have a look. They were pretty far from the road, so the quality of the photo isn’t the best (I really wish I had an image stabilized lens), …

Guest photographer Tom Miller has a turtle for us today. Say hi to the turtle, boys and girls. Do you know what is fun to say? “Turtle.” Turtle, turtle, turtle, turtle, turtle, turtle, turtle. Turtle. I also like to say “pickle,” but that’s not really relevant here. Before you ask …

Guest photographer Maryann Nielson was looking up at the sky (because that’s where the sky is located, unless they moved it without telling me), and caught this bird mid-flight. In social media news… If you haven’t noticed, this here blog this is available on various social media platforms. We have …

We Oregonians don’t let a silly thing like winter stop us from going to public parks, especially on the nicer days. This family at Pioneer Park seemed to be having a good time when I took this photo a week or two ago.

Jeff Shultz captured (with his camera) this lovely pair of mallard ducks in the water next to the SCTC buildings on 2nd Ave. I tried to get a shot of them the other day, but the lighting was all wonky, so I failed. Thanks, Jeff!

Guest photographer Maryann Nielson caught this lovely morning sky yesterday. So that’s what it’s like to get up at daybreak. Thanks, Maryann.

I have more guest photographer photos to post, but thought I would interrupt all that to bring you a photo I took of a door. Yes. This particular door exists on a building on the south end of 3rd Ave. I think it’s on an auto parts store. I really …

Guest photographer Tom Miller went to the outskirts of Salem (more or less) to get this shot of the Macleay Country Store. I’ve never seen it, so this is extra cool to me. Thanks, Tom!

This is too cool. Guest photographer Tom Miller caught this bird (a duck?) in flight at sunset. Thanks, Tom! HEY, PEOPLE, HEY! I changed the layout of this here site thing. There are still things which needs to be tweaked, and they will be tweaked, once I commence the tweaking. …

These are scary times, friends. Guest photographer Terri Jo Adams brings us this terrifying story: I took this picture out at my mom’s house on Kingston-Jordan yesterday. Looks like the walnut tree, which up to this point had always been such a benevolent soul, has turned into a swing-eating monster…. …

I found these lovely deep purple crocus flowers hanging around outside one of the SCTC buildings on 2nd Ave. a couple of days ago. They look like people with giant mouths gaping upwards. “Feed me!” is what they are saying. Trust me on this.

Guest photographer Terri Jo Adams documented the sun’s efforts for us yesterday. Her description: I could feel the sun trying its hardest to warm up our little corner of the world, but the clouds are thwarting its efforts. Poor Sun. Poor Us. It will happen soon, Terri Jo. Spring is coming. [...]

Guest photographer Terri Jo Adams spotted this poor balloon stuck way up in a tree. That’s so sad. Somewhere someone is missing this balloon, and I bet that balloon is missing its human friend, too. If you’ll excuse me, I have to go hug a balloon. Not too tightly, though, because then it would pop [...]

I have important news, friends. What may look like a mild-mannered sprinkler hook-up thingy near the south end of 3rd Ave. is actually an alien. I’ve passed by this creature any number of times without even noticing it, but a few days ago, I stopped and I saw. Look at it looking back at us. It is [...]

Guest photographer Tom Miller brings us this cool photo of a nifty barn. His description: This little old barn sits along the Cascade Hwy between Stayton and Silverton. The house has been empty for awhile, not sure why. Thanks, Tom!
