A haunting story

  When we moved to Oregon, my daughters were roughly 6 and 4 years old. I remember our first visit to this lighthouse and how I delighted in telling them the haunted story. I’m pretty sure the evil mom in me kept scaring them over the next few days. Now that they are 26 and...

    Great story! Well, unless you are the girl in the flowing dress.

    Do you know why it was abandoned after only 3 years of service?ReplyCancel

584 – Moonlit bay

Going out to the coast in the summer can be a total crap shoot. We’ve gone out when the weather is spectacular in the valley and get 5 miles inland and have fog so thick that you can’t see your hand in front of your face. Or worse, the wind is blowing so hard that...

    That coastal fog can definitely put a damper on project365! I’ve been here all summer, but it does make for some cool photo ops sometime. Especially early morning fog. I love this moon photo, I’ve been obsessed with the moon lately! Awesome shot. I like the new website too!ReplyCancel

Day 479 – Save the Gribble Barn

ISO 100, 24mm, f/8.0,  1/80 and 1/1250 sec As I was doing some research yesterday for Dr. Pierce’s barn, I discovered another barn not far from our house… it is also in trouble. The barn was built in 1907 and the barn itself is still owned by a Gribble, but the land it sits on...

    It makes me sad to think that such beautiful structures could be demolished instead of preserved. I can't imagine tearing down something that has seen so much history!ReplyCancel

    how sad.

    what to say but how sad.ReplyCancel

    Such a shame. With all that land there isn't room for a handsome old barn. 🙁ReplyCancel

    I have a love affair with barns so I am so loving this shot! The composition, the lines in the ground, everything. Just fabulous!ReplyCancel

    It's a shame to lose such a slice of Americana. It looks worth preserving.ReplyCancel

    Very nice dramatic skies – it goes really well with your story. What a shame. Great image.ReplyCancel

    Parts of you’re story are correct.but one crucial point you left out or got wrong is, it was a Bergerville commercial not Burger King. This might help you find what you’re looking for.ReplyCancel

Day 478 – Dr. Pierce and his pleasant pellets

ISO 100, 60mm, f/4.0, HDR 1/200, 1/3200,  1/800, 1/50, 1/13 sec Our ambitious adventures had us up and out of the house early this morning. We were on our way to Cottage Grove. We were totally food motivated. Two years ago we were down there to do the covered bridge tour and stumbled upon the...

    I love old painted barns like that! It's even cooler that you found out the history of the ad and the man behind it! Now, if I could just get my hands on some barbecue…ReplyCancel

  • BZ TrainingApril 24, 2011 - 7:15 am

    Yikes! I'm not sure if I should better knowing I don't have all those things, or worse thinking that I could get them. Hmmm…. I don't suppose he still makes those pellets? 🙂

    Great shot! I love pictures of old buildings. 🙂ReplyCancel

Day 455 – Bloomin’ trees

ISO 100, 47mm, f/16, 1/20 sec I drove by the capitol mall today to check out the cherry trees and they were in full bloom. I didn’t have my tripod in the car, so I did my best hand held. Former Governor Charles Sprague bequest $100,000 to build a fountain at the north end of...

    You did a great job hand holding your camera. And I learned something new. I was naive enough to think that cherry trees were only in D.C.!ReplyCancel
