This old tractor was found in the woods near Highway 26, with a small forest of young trees growing up all around (and through) it. It’s kind of amazing how well the green paint has stood the test of time, considering how old this thing is!
Jayda and I stopped by Medford’s Portal Brewing Company at the Central Firehall after our ceremony, for a quick flight of portraits (By the talented Peter Kim) and fine brews. I’ve been trying the Oil Painting abilities of Photoshop to create photo-realistic paintings. What do you think?
Beautiful wedding. Wardrobe, food, entertainment- all done with creative flair at this wedding in downtown Portland, OR. Finally the bride and groom get to escape in their horse-drawn carriage…
I love when nature takes over and is left unchecked by civilization- It may hide or even destroy old architectural ruins, but something about the process is so intimate, so delicately balanced…
Just outside of Dufur, OR- a few miles east and south, you find this gem of a road sign. Good luck.
The architecture speaks for itself- Just don’t pull any boards out of this one!
