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.

All marketing crap... Typical Americans think they have the best everything. 75 Mile beach on Fraser island is considered a national highway and is 3 times longer than this. I'm sure there are plenty of other drivable beaches around the world too. Open your minds and travel a bit...

Wow, what an awesome shot! I love foxes.

My plans for our coast trip had to be drastically altered due to me having a total knee replacement in July and the local school district moving up the start of the school year by 2 weeks. We only ended up spending 3 days in the Newport area instead of spending 2+ weeks touring the length of the coast like I originally planned.

Wish I could have made it to Coos Bay/North Bend and to have met you, Suzi. I'm still plotting to drive the length of the coast but it will probably have to wait until my daughter graduates from high school in a couple of years. Hopefully we can meet up then. :)

'The Maryhill Stonehenge: A full-size concrete replica of Stonehenge, as it would have been originally built, saw construction commence and was originally dedicated on July 4, 1918. Built in Maryhill, Washington by Sam Hill, it was the first monument in the United States to honor the dead of World War I (specifically, soldiers from Klickitat County, Washington who had died in the still on-going war). The altar stone is placed to be aligned with sunrise on the Summer Solstice. Hill, a Quaker pacifist, was mistakenly informed that the original Stonehenge had been used as a sacrificial site, and thus constructed the replica as a reminder that humanity is still being sacrificed to the god of war. The monument was originally located in the center of Maryhill, which later burned down leaving only the Stonehenge replica. A second formal dedication of the monument took place upon its completion on May 30, 1929. Sam Hill, who died in 1931, lived long enough to see his Stonehenge completed'. [Wikipaedia]

Built as a home for Seattle shipyard tycoon, Robert Moran, in 1902. Bequeathed to the State in 1922.

I suspect there was controversy about erecting this arch. But somebody said "People will take pictures of the arch and share them with others, who would otherwise have never heard of our little town." It worked.

Very nice spring view.

Thank you very much, A..W.. I am glad to have you visit my gallery. Ron.

Cute and creative!

Cottage Grove looks like a pretty cool little town. Love your photos from there!
