Columbia River Gorge

We spent today in the wonderful Columbia River Gorge. We always stop by the Vista House-vistahouse.com to take a short break and to take some photos. The Gorge is spectacular There are tons of Trails and Waterfalls that run up the old Highway that parallels Highway 84 east bound from Portland ending at the huge Multnomah Falls multnomahfallslodge.com If you visit Oregon this is a must see.

Here are some totally random pictures for all to enjoy. I love taking a variety of shots off all different things but, as you can tell the coast is my favorite subject

Enchanted Forest

These are some photos taken with my old Kodak a few years ago at a theme park near Turner, Oregon called the Enchanted Forest. It's a family owned operation that has been there since the 1970's and was hand built over a number of years. It has all sorts of Storybook Character interactive displays as well as a log ride and tons of other things to do including a great Haunted House It's a bit cheesy but well worth a summer day visit with the family.

Fun time post

I thought it was time for a fun post of me posing with every character at Disney! There are also some here from when we visited Universal Studios, Hollywood. I'm such a kid at heart, and it's so much fun posing with all of them, what a great time!

John Day Oregon

This area of John Day is called the Painted Hills. The minerals in the soil give the hills a beautiful red color that looks like someone painted colors right onto them. It's quite stunning.

School project

This collage is from a school project where I created a Daguerreotype photo before and after. Of course we did not do the actual process, we have photoshop for that! It was a very interesting and fun project.

A Daguerreotype (original French: daguerréotype) is one of the earliest photographic processes, developed by Jacques Daguerre, in which the image is formed by amalgam i.e. a combination of mercury and silver. Mercury vapor from a pool of heated mercury is used to develop the plate that consists of a copper plate with a thin coating of silver rolled in contact that has previously been sensitised in iodine vapor (later sensitivity was increased by using the other halides - chlorine and bromine to form silver chloride and silver bromide crystals reducing the exposure time to about one minute.
