Taken on December 27, 2012. This is a picture of the bridge in the back ground but also as my sourses tell me I think it is an oven from a factory that burned down.

Date taken: December 24, 2012. 'Tis the season to be jolly. I hope you all had a wonderful and safe Christmas. Mine was exactly how I wanted it to be, perfect. I was with my family and we spent the whole day together. I hope your day was just as special.

Date taken: December 24, 2012. In this photo there is Young's Bay Bridge. On the other side is Warrenton.
I like this picture because the sky and the water color don't take away the attention from the bridge. In my opinion stands out amongst the other aspects in the picture.

Picture Date: December 20, 2012 at 3:17 p.m.
In the picture there is the Astoria-Megler Bridge, the Wauna Federal Credit Union, and a hotel to my right. I was walking home from downtown Astoria, when I looked up at the sky and decided to take a picture. I could smell the fresh rain coming in and the nice sunshine about to be hided behind the clouds. I loved the nice sunshine, but was welcoming the incoming rain.
Not one of my best pictures but I hope you all enjoy:).

This picture was taken on December 20, 2012 at 2:04 p.m. I like the color of the clouds in this photo. The building in the picture is the Astoria Riverwalk Inn. Behind this building is also where boats can be stored at docks. The bridge in the picture is the Astoria-Megler Bridge. Where I am standing, is on the riverwalk. The riverwalk goes on for about 2 miles or so where you walk along the coast. It is quite beautiful.

Astoria, Oregon ~ December 4, 2011
It was a cold day, but very beautiful along the river.
I have had a couple of nibbles, but have not resolved whether we will have a guest blogger, or who that will be. Still working on it. Thanks for your replies.

Astoria, Oregon ~ September 19, 2012
This photo is unusual because: 1) I took it during a (please excuse me if you come from a place where these actually occur) rare traffic jam, and 2) It's not a spot I would normally think of photographing. This is the traffic circle leading onto the Young's Bay Bridge. I posted a popular photo here, where you see the same buildings and hill from a more photogenic angle. If you were to look out the passenger side window, you would soon see a view like this one.

Astoria, Oregon ~ June 13, 2011
All of today's photos by J. Schu
On June 10, 2011, I photographed rhododendrons in front of the KMUN Radio Station house on 14th and Exchange. New in town, "J." happened to be walking around with his camera and coincidentally took these striking photos of the same building with its gorgeous floral dressing at almost the same time. He e-mailed me with the photos, and they have (unconscionably) sat in my "to be posted" file much longer than I'd like to admit.
So, today let's all enjoy some color and remember one of the reasons we love the buckets of rain we're getting this week. Maybe December rains really do bring June flowers.
This last pic was taken on June 20, 2011.
Thank you, J., for the ray of sunshine, and I hope you are seeing this post despite my deplorable delay :-)

Astoria, Oregon ~ June 8, 2012
My "street," the Astoria Riverwalk, is so extraordinary that I've shown it many times on this blog. It runs along the river the whole length of town and beyond. Here you see a fraction of it in the foreground. It connects to Marine Drive (parallel, beyond the stop sign). Here it also intersects with 15th Street, which takes you up the hill to the college. The Riverwalk never looks much like a street, but like an alleyway, parking lot, paved walkway, boardwalk, or trolley trestle. I showed the view west from here in yesterday's post. Unaccountably, any building fronting the Riverwalk bears the address of some other street. For instance, the address just behind me is 1490 Marine Drive, and you can see how that would confuse someone actually looking for it on Marine Drive.
