This building, though not very easy to tell, is perched right on the edge of a small canyon. Likely it used to be a simple river, but erosion made the banks drop down at a precipitous angle. I have tried to find the exact location again this past June, but I think it might have completely fallen in by now. Nature wins.
This year’s excursion into the arid Eastern Oregon
wastelands farmlands was a great success; more images to come. The general effects of Wind and Solar decay on the old homesteads and ghost towns is both haunting and beautiful. The effect in this one image was actually a technical error, but I really enjoy what happened.
Earlier last month I got the chance to join my son’s third grade class on an overnight field trip to Silver Falls, OR. We had a great time hiking, sharing ghost stories, making S’mores, flying kites, looking for planets and stars in the night sky, … you know, all the that typically awesome third-grade stuff. Today is the last day of school for his class and their awesome teacher, Ms. Henning, who’s moving on to greener pastures as well. Thank you all for a great time! 21 more images to look through in the gallery.
