Not Again?!?! With Photos

So here’s the photographic evidence.

Yes, those are postal vehicles because that's the back of post office.

Yes, that street is indeed going downhill. This town is full of hills because we're right up against the Costal Mountains. And yes, that tree is really freaking tall. There are several of those around town.

A Day

Three days in a row I’ve managed to get out of my apartment and do something.  When dealing with depression and anxiety, this is a big deal.

Old College Hall, Pacific University

This is the oldest educational building West of the Mississippi.  This is on campus of my alma mater. It’s current location is a result of a move they made back in 2004/2005 when they started to build the new library.  (New to me since they built it after I graduated and repurposed the old library.) I love the view of it with the trees behind it.

image

I rang the bell when I first started.  You also ring when you graduate which I didn’t get to do since they weren’t doing it at the time. The first floor now holds a chapel and reception room while the upstairs holds a musuem.  The upstairs had been the science department back around the beginning of the 1900s.

Mmm…Blackberries

So I’ve been walking for at least thirty minutes every morning.  Tiring, exhausting, and sore but the views are nice.

Would you believe I had to look up to get these?  Blackberries are a weed, a delicious weed, but still a weed that grows out of control if not aggressively pruned.  So they can get talk as they grow up along side trees.

But still good in zucchini bread.

The mountains in the distance, which really aren’t all that far, are the Coastal Mountains.  (The sidewalk I’m standing in is down lower since it doesn’t run right next to the street but instead runs down lower.  I live in a town that is basically all hills so nothing is really truly flat.  Makes for good exercise but can be a pain for things as well.)

Sunlight on my shoulders makes me happy (Let’s all sing John Denver now)

I didn’t get a photo of the cyclists that were out.  There must have been a bicycle race this morning.  Every so often as I was walking along this main thoroughfare in town there would be groups of cyclists.  Most of them had grey hair, so not your typical riders.  Hey, if they wanted to ride around instead of stopping and smelling the roses, whatever.  (This time of year there are tons of races, meets, competitions, whatever you want to call them.  It’s not raining and the views are nice.  And not too got or cold.)

A Tuesday Sunset

I’ll let the photos speak for themselves (though I do wish I had a good camera better than the one on my phone that I took these with. Oh well.)

Car Fixed, Who Ordered This Weather

Yes, my car is now fixed.  New alternator, new battery, and an oil change.  So hopefully no problems for a while.  Actually, I saw my next problem (tires) but it can wait and with the weather changing, not such a big issue right now.

On my walk to the mechanic I snapped a few pics of the lovely greenery that results of our schizophrenic weather.

I don’t know what these are but I love how vibrant they are.

So all in all a good day.

Just a Moment

image

I wish I still did photography as a hobby.  This is a pic of Henry Hagg Lake in Oregon.  It’s not all that far of a drive for me from where I live.  Photography was a bit of a soothing hobby for me plus something I was pretty decent at.  I could shoot a roll of film (I know, I’m dating myself though it was only a few years ago) and get.several pictures off it instead of just maybe one.  (That was something repeated by the professional photographers I worked with that you couldn’t always expect to have one decent.photo let alone more even if you were disciplined and whatnot.  It wasn’t a slam at ability but more of being cautious and not becoming arrogant and being aware that you should and could always be learning.)

And sometimes, I just need chocolate.
