Milwaukie, Oregon –

My 5 and 7 year old friends and I like to give flowers a little more life when they are wilting.  So we remove their stems, fill their “Kiddie pool” with water, and place the flowers in.  We call it the “flower pond.”

Around the USA in photographs….

WOW!  Made it around the USA…  The blog started in Washington state and has now returned to the northwest in 90 posts!

Four years of trips of photographs were chronicled!

Now, the blog will change gears.  Now, I will post collections of some of my favorite photos that did not make the prior pages.  New locations will be added in no specific order – as I visit them in my current travels.

Thank you so much for enjoying at my blog!

Here’s a picture from Alexandria Bay, New York….

West Virginia – New Martinsville

I stopped off in a little city of New Martinsville.  The city is located to the east of the  Ohio River.  (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Martinsville,_West_Virginia)

The city was cute.  I snapped a couple pictures of the roads.

One of the houses had gorgeous gardens.  Took a few pictures of that, too.

Oregon – Portland

My starting point for all of my adventures has been Portland.

I moved to the area in 1997, after falling in love with the Columbia River Gorge (see earlier post).  Since then, I have left about 5 or 6 times.  Some times it was to start a new life somewhere else, but every time I return to this area.

Back in 1998, I grabbed my old Minolta Maxxum film camera and started taking pictures of the local beauty.  For the next year, I worked as a professional photographer, selling my photographs of the beauty in the region.

So even though these pictures were not taken as part of my recent adventures, I include this sampling to show you the beautiful area where I started my journeys.

Oregon – Manzanita

In 2011, I spent the summer in Manzanita, Oregon.

Manzanita is a very small town on the northern Oregon coast.  There are only about 400 full time residents living there, but in the summer season the place explodes with summer visitors.  (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manzanita,_Oregon)

I found the area while driving down the Oregon coast, looking for a place I would like to live.  I turned in on the road to Manzanita and feel in love.
