Black and White Challenge Day 1

I borrowed the black and white challenge from a fellow blogger who also lives in Central Oregon and this is my first installment of a week-long fulfillment.

Last November we had our first giant snowfall and this is what we saw when we opened the garage door after 2 1/2 days of the white stuff. Wonder what she was thinking after being born and raised in the desert?  Feel free to add your comments. Would love to hear what you think! Namaste’

Aspen Eye

Looking out of my dining room window, I noticed for the first time the all-seeing “eye” on one of the Aspen trees.  Now that I know it’s there and watching me, I will probably have to have conversations with it.  Please don’t call the guys in the white coats just yet, OK?  I’ll let you know how I and the “eye” get along.  Namaste’

Bronco Billy’s

Week Two of the weekly photo challenge found me in front of one of our landmarks here in this small town I live in now.  This place is quite unique in that we have not one single stoplight and the whole town was developed with a western motif.  I absolutely love shopping and eating in community businesses in central Oregon.  And I don’t miss the big box stores at all.

I grew up in small towns and now things have come full circle.  I love the circle of life.

This image is of one of a popular restaurant here in town. All that’s missing is a hitching post and a couple of horse-riding cowboys 🙂  Namaste’

Snow? Time to Go!

Today’s image is of our patio table, which now has another layer of snow.  It wasn’t bad enough that we had 2 1/2 feet of it a couple of weeks ago, but then this showed up yesterday.  Just when the accumulation had melted!  (Studded snow tires make all the difference, though). Oh, well, I keep telling myself that winter won’t last forever.

I thought the texture that the snow produced on the table was kind of cool.  See? … a silver lining in every cloud.  Namaste’
