Classic Gorge

As an Oregonian, I have seen a multitude of images of the Columbia River Gorge. A classic shot is the Vista House on Crown Point taken from the West near the Women’s Forum Park. It gives scale to the Vista House and the Gorge (Columbia River Gorge).

Blaze of Glory…..

“It is a hard although a common case To find our children running restive- they In whom our brightest days we would retrace, Our little selves reform’d in finer clay, Just as old age is creeping on apace, And clouds come o’er the sunset of our day…” Lord Byron

Exploring the Hidden……

I happened upon this abandoned building, in a remote area. The outside fascinated me with the rustic wood exterior and metal work still attached. Then I noticed a separation between the boards. I peered in and could see a forgotten area. I stuck the lens into the crack and snapped a few.

“O Solitude! If I must with thee dwell, Let it not be among the jumbled heap of murky buildings” John Keats (1795-1821)  Unless you like to photograph old, abandoned buildings and wonder why and what was.

Everyone Searching for Clarity at the Core

“I experience a period of frightening clarity in those moments when nature is so beautiful. I am no longer sure of myself, and the paintings appear as in a dream” Vincent Van Gogh

Alone on a Ridge

“Thus we play the fool with time, and the spirits in the clouds above mock us.” Shakespeare

“My land is bare of chattering folk; the clouds are low along the ridges, and sweet’s the air with curly smoke from all my burning bridges.”  Dorothy Parker

“I owned the world that hour as I rode over it. free of the earth, free of the mountains, free of the clouds, but how inseparably I was bound to them.” Charles Lindbergh
