I was driving north to Junction City again with the sun behind me and these monstrous heavy rain clouds to my west. While I’m often slowed due to the large number of farming equipment being driven on the road I can appreciate it when it allows me to capture pictures like I did today!
Watching the clouds roll in.
By the end of my 30 minute drive the clouds went from this blue below to grey.
Loved the blue and green contrast; the melodramatic weather of Oregon.
A little over an hour later I drove through about 400 meters of hail and I heard the Willamette Valley (of which I am a resident of & is quite large) has seen its first snow.
So enjoy the drive out here.
Heading south I stopped in the middle of the road. Farm land to my left.
And the farm to my right.
Almost two months ago I found out that a dear friend of mine died. She would have been 34 this month and for her birthday I took some time to go through photos. Most of my photos were taken with a Kodak EasyShare digital camera, my first digital camera. I’m glad I’ve since upgraded cameras but I so appreciate having the memories & pictures from my time with Sariah and her daughter Alana. We shared a love of her daughter, Asian culture, music, dancing, second hand shopping, Thai food, education, and travelling.
Our friend Jan took this photo for us in Medford, Oregon at her home (a little blurry but I love it).
Sariah, Alana, & Jasmine
One of my all time favorite pictures I got with this camera.
The Gulf of Mexico at Fort Walton Beach, Florida
My 1st trip to Navarre, Florida. Alana & I checked out the local butterfly garden.
