Steel Bridge

Steel Bridge

Portland's Steel Bridge, with its towers reflected here in the still waters of the Willamette on a foggy morning, brings an industrial majesty to this wonderful city of bridges. The Steel Bridge is one of eight bridges connecting the east and west side...

Enchanted Forest

Enchanted Forest

View of the forest at the edge of the camas field at Lacamas Regional Park. It's a fairly diverse park; at the lower elevation the hike winds around a lake and through a cedar forest.  I love all the different mosses on these trees.

Camas Study 6

Thank you for all the input yesterday on camas selection; it helps me in narrowing down my decision. I'm finishing up calendar layout today, so I have to select on short notice which I don't like to do. After looking through my camas photos, I decided ...

Forest Lily

I'm taking a break from the camas today to post another photo from the trail at Lacamas Regional Park.  It's some sort of lily; I'm sorry I don't know the variety despite all my internet searching this morning.  There were about a dozen of th...

Camas Study 5

Well, I made it back to the camas field this morning for a third time this season.  I tried to go yesterday, got all the way to the park, headed out on the trail, turned on my camera, and realized that the new battery I loaded was not charged.&nbs...

Camas Study 3

A grassier location at the camas field.  And a little bit harsher light too.  I wasn't able to get back to the field today, but I'm planning a trip out there for tomorrow morning.  Our sunny weather looks like it will hold through the we...

Camas Study 2

When I started 45journal I was really inspired by the photography of Jim Brandenburg. I spent my first year on the blog trying to copy all his photos, and sometimes I still try to capture his style. I wasn't thinking about his prairie wildflower photos...

Camas Study 1

As the title name implies, I'm probably going to post a series of photos from my trip to the camas field in Lacamas Regional Park.  Camas is a perennial flower in the Pacific Northwest.  Related to the asparagus, it has a sweet inulin-rich bu...

It’s My Birthday Too, Yeah

Happy 5th Anniversary, 45journal!  Hard to believe that my one year project, began in 2010, is entering its sixth year today.  If you asked me when I started this blog, if I'd still be posting photos in 2015, I wouldn't have even considered i...
