rustic remnants…

The Gulick Homestead in The Dalles, Oregon. A Scottish settler married a Wasco Nation woman named Harriet and constructed a homestead on the banks of the Columbia River in the late 1800’s. A very few of the buildings barely stand today.

leaning into history…

This old structure is East of Portland, Oregon near the town of The Dalles. The area is exposed to harsh winds and all the varieties of moisture the Pacific NW has to offer. Somehow the building still stands. We have been visiting this site for 35 years and little changes….a good thing.

All those questions….

GHOST TOWNS OF THE WEST
Joel T. Bailey

There are old forgotten places
Out in the vast Western land
Where reminders of the past
And ghost like buildings stand

Long ago cowboys and miners
Called these old towns home
Now they’re places where only
Ghosts and coyotes roam….

You know how it is…you take a variety of images. I try to take them and then concoct some short blurb about the photo to connect with you. Often, I take photos and they just sit there…hundreds of them that I never use and can’t mentally connect to language to grab your interest…or so I assume. So, tonight, I figured I would just throw down some photos to give them exposure and with only these words to explain.

C. S. Lewis on Do Gooder Tyranny

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”
