The Oregon shots just keep coming

Hope you're not sick of images from Oregon yet. I just edited another dozen or so. I'll spread them out over a few days and be done with Oregon and I'll move on to something else.

I went in to set up my new classroom today. I loaded my truck with all the things that were packed in the garage for the past 4 years when I left classroom teaching. I got to the new school and no one was there. I received a nice welcome letter last week which stated that we could start coming in to set up. I think today must have been some holiday of which I was unaware. My apologies to you if today was the most sacred of occasions for you as I sit here in ignorance. So I'll try again tomorrow.

Ok, on to the pictures. These five images were all taken in the cute little town of Jacksonville.

I've been loving brick lately. I saw this wall and knew I had to use it. Julianne's cousin, Perry, got them laughing like this. Thanks Perry!


I saw this beautiful sky formation. I thought it worked well with the lines of the buildings below.


When I saw this bike approaching, I had to get a shot of the goggled doggy.


Julianne's uncle Claude wanted me to get a shot of the interior of this old time barber shop. So I also got the exterior. I like them in b&w. I might go back and try sepia.

Nice photos as always. I think the two barber shop shots are my favorites.

Robert, seriously? Don't you know what today was???

Yeah, me neither. :) Hopefully the school will be open tomorrow for you to get all set up! (Those were some of my favorite times, setting up my classroom before school started for the year.)

And, I think the barber shop shots are my favorites, too. Of course after Julianne and Lily. It just needs to be understood if they are in any picture, then those are my favorites. :)

I tried to decide which photo I liked best, but each was wonderful for a different reason!

I love the barber shop pics. And that "Anna Carson Tilt???" Wherever did you learn that??? Hehehehe. Really makes for a fun pic I think....

You're lucky to have gotten so many photos to post, so go for it! I really like the barbershop ones...and of course the laughing women in your life too.

Great shots, as usual! I love the barbar shop ones, and the doggy with googles!

Carletta said...

Wonderful images!
The loving laughter, the blue sky, the way cool doggie, and the vintage barber - all wonderfully done!

Hmmm...today - a holiday I wasn't aware of - missed that one. ;)
Hopefully you can get in tomorrow. So I don't forget to tell you I hope your school year in this new position is wonderful in all ways!!

Great shot! The goggled doggie is tons o' fun, and I love the barber shop. Black and white suits for the old-timey feel of a place like that.

Ditto-especially like the Barber Shop frontage shot!

I got paid triple time today for going to work! NOT! I hope that this isn't some foreshadowing of your new school's administration!

Keep the photos coming! We like em.

Great shots, Robert. How fun to have Juliane and Lily laughing together. Very sweet. I love the B&W barber shop - inside and out. Nice composition.

The dog with goggles cracks me up. Very fun all the way around. Stunning shots, as always.

OMG I love Jacksonville! It's such a cute town! I've been there a few times on vacation. Well we didn't vacation there, but we drove to Jacksonville during our vacation (ramble)

Anyway....now I want to go back. Thanks a lot...

Am I supposed to comment on your beautiful pictures?? <-- I think I just did. :)
