I'm an amateur photographer who on the odd occasion is at the right place at the right time. I have been taking pictures since I was about eight years old using a hand-me-down 110 Instamatic. I've also had a Pentax Zoom 90-WR, Kodak Z740, and now a Kodak Z990 digital camera. I enjoy taking pictures of flowers (especially wildflowers), lighthouses, waterfalls, architecture, and other things I find interesting, which is just about everything. My profile picture is a self-portrait taken outside Voodoo Doughnuts in downtown Portland Oregon, July 2013.

Thank you very much, Nenad and Olga. Best regards. Ron.

Beautiful photo. This gets a 'like' and a 'favorite' from me. You have a wonderful eye for composition.

When I was about 7 years old (1964 or 1965... gasp!), my older sister's boyfriend said that he had found an abandoned lighthouse on the coast and we all went to take a look at it. This is the lighthouse. (Now restored.)
There was a beaten-up sign pointing to a trail off a seldom-used dirt parking lot. The place was overgrown and in ruins. (Though not badly vandalized yet.) Some metal stairs went up 2 sides of the hexagonal structure to the observation deck. Someone had gained access to the lamp housing and placed a very neat, professional-looking sign inside that read "Six Candlepower". In front of the sign, facing the ocean was a six-prong candelabrum with old, ratty candles set in it all crooked.
Thanks for bringing back this early, whimsical memory.
By the way, I love your photos. It seems you took quite a tour of the Western US.

Wonderful Farm Picture!!!!



Wonderful Picture!!!!



It is sad to hear the garden is not being kept up. My wife and I discussed stopping there last winter but were short of time so had to head home instead. She has never seen the garden and I thought it would make an interesting stop... I guess we may have avoided a disappointment. Keep up the good work, I enjoy your photography!

Wonderful old Railroad Bridge Picture!!!!



More beautiful leaves. Thanks for reminding me of autumn.

Really nice colors in leaves and sky.

Thanks Fred and olydon. I was mainly trying to get a picture of the sheep and thought the butte made a nice background. Plus I took this from our pickup window as we were driving by on the freeway (my husband was driving).
