Now What?

This amusing frog was conveniently imprisoned in a glass aquarium at the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry, making him a very cooperative macro subject. I just love his expression, as he seems to be saying, “now what?”*

That’s almost how I feel after completing my 365-day photo blog project, but not really. I have had plenty to keep me busy the last few months, with an iPhone application development project taking the bulk of my time. It will be nice to not have the daily post hanging over my head. It will be nice instead to have the opportunity to take photos when I see a creative opportunity, rather than just every time the sun comes up. For those of you not already following my posts on Flickr, you may want to bookmark my Flickr page, as that’s where I will be posting any future photos worthy of sharing with the world.

To those of you who have been following my posts, thank you for viewing and for commenting. It’s been a challenge finding unique and interesting subject matter for a whole year, but I hope you’ve enjoyed viewing as much as I’ve enjoyed shooting. I do plan to keep posting to Flickr as my creativity urges me, but just not every day. Thanks for sticking with me, and have fun out there! 🙂

( * My old friend Dave “DQN” Kuehn will recognize “Now what?” as a reference to the glory days of Hedron Productions, a mock film production company that we were both part of back in the early ’80s. We accomplished some really fun stuff back then, considering that my “camcorder” was a shoulder-mounted camera, tied with a thick cable to a 10 pound VCR and battery pack over my other shoulder. The video was all analog, our editing required two VCRs, and our credits and titles were hand-drawn with magic markers. If YouTube had existed back then, we would have been all over it. Today is Dave’s birthday, so I thought it was appropriate to mention this. Happy birthday, D.B.)

This ornate staircase spans three floors in the Pittock Mansion in Portland. Flash and tripods are not allowed, so I had to do my best with hand-held at a high ISO.

Stainless Art?

This unusual stainless steel sculpture is actually the kitchen sink at Pittock Mansion in Portland. Just in case anyone wants to say that my 365-day photo blog has everything but the kitchen sink, I wanted to make sure I had that, too.

Bridge to Silver City

This is the same bridge as yesterday’s post. Locals say that this bridge was used to carry supplies to Silver City, apparently before it became a ghost town.

Stacked Hay

These bales of hay were all lined up in a nice row, and the regular spacing and the gaps between them seemed unusual to me, so I had to take a shot of it.
