Astoria, Oregon ~ March 27-28, 2008
Guest Photographer: Karl Erickson
Karl wrote, "This photo was taken during a bad weather spring break visit our family made on March 27-28, 2008. I might share a more cheerful photo, or two, later." It looks like Karl's photo shows West Mooring Basin and the bridge, and it seems to have been taken from upstairs in the Red Lion Inn.
Yes! I forgot to mention in my initial announcement of the photo contest, please feel free to send any number of images at any time throughout the month of October. See the page linked at the top of the blog for more contest details.
Karl said, "By the way, I'm trying to promote my children's book set in Astoria, which will be released next month. If you have any creative suggestions for your community, I'd be interested!" Anyone who has good suggestions for Karl, please follow the links below and let him know, OK? I looked at the illustration, and it seems like a charming book. Our Asoria Bridge is featured, and I'm waiting to see what else is inside the cover.
Karl Erickson is the author of "Tristan's Travels" (coming fall/winter 2010), as well as a published essayist.
