late May 2017 we went up to Oregon to check out the scenery and visit family. I've never seen Oregon, so it was fantastic to once again, have reality unravel from my imagination expectations. The first thing I noticed was.... green!!! The green overgrown forest reminded me of Russia, and Northern California. The moss, the pine, late spring eiderdown floating through tress. etc..
It was crazy!The forest still with the birds and insects singing, rustling of leaves, scents of sap.
Sometimes I imagine Siberia reaching all the way through Alaska and down the Western mountain ranges into Northern California.
We drove to the coast first,
through the valley, up through the Tillamook Range until we could sense the golden coastal air. I recorded the ocean and took exploration photographs.
The coast was pristine. It was nice being 1000 Km north of my local beach on the same coast. I wonder If I can hang glide down?
Just driving around with a camera.
But at only that
I also shot lots of 35mm
