Mouse Knot

I found this design embedded in a wooden post at one of the stops along Crater Lake's Rim Drive. I usually look for secondary subjects when the primary subject, in this case Crater Lake, is not in ideal light.

This is a cropped photograph of a Strathmore drawing pad. I usually avoid photographing artist designs and products. The three brushes, however, interrupted the original design just enough to attract my attention.

Road Stencil

"TRUCKS" had just been stenciled on a driveway as I drove by. Captivated by the positive/negative abstraction the letters formed, I found the closest parking space and darted over for a few shots before the painter had a chance to pick up the stencils and take off.

Net Four

I couldn't resist posting this recent image of a basketball net, despite last week's photograph. One of the perks of our new home in Talent, OR is the city park right across the street, where "Net Four" was taken.

Backboard at Dusk

With a beautiful setting sky, but a backboard that I found too dark, I decided to use a flash on the basket and take "Backboard at Dusk" at a slow speed to help create a sense of tension and movement.
