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.

Rustic cabin…

Old cabin in the Oregon Ochoco Mountains, 1974. A traditional shot I took over the years when passing through this area. In this one, the shots a touch blurry using the old cardboard housed Instamatic. I tweaked this one into B&W. Below is the original, faded image in color.

an old garage/shop door…

Run down house & out buildings. You can tell it use to be a nice property, well maintained. Then things happened and no one keeps up. The sad progression of events.

a place in the country…

“Inside a barn is a whole universe, with its own time zone and climate and ecosystem, a shadowy world of swirling dust illuminated in tiger stripes by light shining through the cracks between the boards. Old leather tack, lengths of chain, rope, and baling twine dangled from nails and rafters and draped over stall railings. Generations of pocketknives lay lost in the layers of detritus on the floor.” Carolyn Jourdan, Heart in the Right Place

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.

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.”
