Pretty for the Season

Astoria, Oregon ~ December 18, 2012

"A Piece of the Sky" by Amy Ryding

Astoria, Oregon ~ Photo by Amy Ryding

Hi, Everyone. This gorgeous image from Amy Ryding will, hopefully, help make up for my lapse in posting. CLICK TO ENLARGE. This photo is PANORAMIC. 

I've been lax this week dealing with business stuff. Turns out it's time to build a whole new web store ASAP (mine is 17 years old), and that is a huge job. I'm also dealing with insurance stuff. Did you know that if most of your sales are online and you pay an employee $500 per month you have to pay Worker's Comp at the same rate as if you had warehouses and forklifts? Yup. Turns out, it's true. That's my rant for today. Enjoy Amy's fantastic photo! Hope you are all having a great weekend.

Silver Magic by Andrew Rieskamp

Fort Stevens State Park ~ Photo by Andrew Rieskamp

This photo makes me think of something that happens in a darkroom when the silver in photographic paper combines with darkroom chemicals.

Dock Patterns

Astoria, Oregon ~ October 26, 2013

I took this photo from Angela Sidlo's Waves of Change Wellness Center upstairs at Doc's On 12th. It's one of my favorite places in Astoria. Follow the link to the Waves of Change Facebook page. Amy's photo of the pilot boat under rainbows posted on November 13 was taken from the same location.

Ships at Dock by Amy Ryding

Astoria, Oregon ~ Photo by Amy Ryding

I love this shot. As many times as I've been to the 17th Street dock, Amy's photo makes it look like a different place, like a a postcard from the early 1900s. Visit Amy's Long Beach Peninsula Photo blog.

Purple Light on Old Bones

The Peter Iredale at Fort Stevens State Park ~ Photo by Amy Ryding

This photo was originally posted on Long Beach Peninsula Photo, the blog with the great subtitle, on April 21, 2013. Amy wrote, "The Peter Iredale wrecked on October 25, 1906. Fortunately, there was no loss of life. The Iredale has been on my photographic bucket list for a few months. Although it’s been photographed thousands of times over the past century, it still manages to inspire the imaginations of photographers. The day I went was no exception; there were at least seven other people photographing it while I was there."

Amy's blog is one of my favorites. I liked it from the beginning. Later we met and became great friends.

October Morning on the River Walk

Astoria, Oregon ~ October 21, 2013

Hello Everyone,

This is Sheryl. I want to thank Cyndi Mudge for her time, effort, and vision in keeping this blog going and posting her visual record of Astoria for most of the past year. Even though we all live in the same town, it's always fascinating to see what interests different photographers or how they view the same locations. It's been fun to see Astoria through the eyes of another person. 

I will be posting a number of my own photos again, and I am also interested in finding other photographers who would like a showcase for a week's worth of their images. I will be having guest weeks, so send me your photos any time. Or if you have fewer than seven, that can work, too. If you took that one great shot that you'd like everyone to see, send it along :-) I won't have space for absolutely everything, but I do want to showcase photos by people other than myself. You can contact me through Facebook, or by email. My address is oregontapir@yahoo.com. 

It's nice to be back. I look forward to sharing comments about our favorite town on the river!

Thank You!

 Puppy Break -- Shamu mugging for the camera. So named because he looks and squeals like an Orca Whale.

Thank you for your patience and allowing me this puppy break. 

 I've had to temporarily suspend the daily photos due to an overwhelming amount of work that includes volunteering for the 2013 Commercial Fishermen's Festival taking place this weekend, opening  a new business managing the Astoria Event Center, raising four puppies my mama dog Greta gave birth to six weeks ago, and of course,overseeing the Astoria Sunday Market during a busy time. 

 My ability to tour the community to take photos has been limited this past month as I adjust to living in the house of poo.

Happily, puppies are nearly ready for their shots then in just two weeks ready for their forever homes.  The puppies have been noisy, messy, chaotic fun.  My wall-to-wall carpeting did not survive.

Highliners!

Hammond Marina, Oregon - September 2013
These are Highliners posing following the 2012 Captain Phil Harris Highliner Competion at the Commercial Fishermen's Festival.  Highliners are what commercial fishermen call the top fishermen in the fleet.  The 2013 Commercial Fishermen's Festival takes place at Hammond Marina this weekend, September 14 & 15.  The Festival celebrates one of the traditional industries of our community and we hope to see some of you there!

Weekly Astoria Sunday Market photo

Astoria Sunday Market ~ 2011

Yes, it's a Dog Meets Dog World.  This is another of my favorite shots of a dog meeting his likeness created by artist Ronni.  I am posting this one in honor of the Dog Day Afternoon event taking place this Sunday at the Market.

Whose Doors are These?

Astoria Event Center ~ August 2013

Love these doors and the stained glasswork above!  This is the Astoria Event Center.  The Astoria Event Center and adjacent Shipyard Bar & Grill was built in 1924 after the disastrous fire of December 1922.  The facility was purchased in 2007 by Fred and Chrissy VanHorn, who invested a great deal into the redevelopment of the interior.  New owners are taking over at the end of the month and the facility will be managed by my newly formed company, Columbia Bar Productions, LLC! </end of shameless plug>

Cruis'n through the summer.

Port of Astoria ~ August 20, 2013

It is unusual to have cruise ships arrive in August but we were graced with the Regatta today.  Market vendors got settled into a new location for the cruise ship market put together by Astoria Sunday Market to welcome cruise guests and crew.

Fish On!

West Mooring Basin ~ August 15, 2013

It's Buoy 10 time in Astoria!  The town is full of fishermen this time of year as they try their hand at fishing the Columbia River.  This photo was taken off the deck of a hotel room at Astoria Riverwalk Inn.

Bloomin' in Astoria

Lexington ~ August 9, 2013

This is one of my favorite home gardens.  I love that the yard is filled with flowers instead of a lawn.

Rock Formations

South Jetty ~ August 2013

People seem to enjoy creating odd rock formations at the beach for others to discover and enjoy.  These are two in a series of six or so formations I found one day while exploring the South Jetty.

River Walk

River Walk ~ July 2013

Guest Blogger Karen Allen was playing with her camera phone during a stroll down the River Walk and sent a number of photos.  This is one of my favorites from that series.  Karen Allen and her husband Steve own the Wet Dog Cafe and Astoria Brewing Company.  Truly wonderful people!

Lavender Bliss

Astoria Sunday Market ~ July 28, 2013

I took a brief blogging break while my sister was visiting and my dog was having puppies.  Tonight Astoria Sunday Market picture of the week.  Lavender season is a very short season so fans flock to get their fix while it lasts.  One of my favorite things about the Market is the beautiful colors of all the flowers and produce.  This image along with many others posted here are taken by Elizabeth McMaster.
