“I needed to know what Margot was like when she wasn’t being Margot.’

I have to admit that I don’t know where this was taken or what it is even a picture of. Well, it appears it is a waterfall but the chicken wire is throwing me off a little.
Ok, while I was typing that last sentence it hit me. I know where this was taken. It was taken at Zig Zag Falls. I think I have pinholed this with every single camera that I own at this point (note to self, this might make an interesting blog post).
Camera: Zero 45 (25mm configuartion)
Film: Illford Delta 100
Exposure time: ?
Something from the archives: This was found when I was cleaning out my desk over the weekend. it was taken in California by Rafael at Pigeon Point Lighthouse in the early 90’s. I must have been 25 in this photo? Somewhere around there.
The Ghost of the Yaquina Bay Light – Oregon CoastPhotography, Travel and Other Adventures
Today’s blog post is a lazy one – here is a spooky post I wrote yesterday for Pinhole Obscura. 🙂
Last Summer when I was in Newport, OR I visited the Yaquina Bay Lighthouse. It’s a beautiful old house. As I wandered through with my pinhole camera I happened to hear the story of the ghost of the lighthouse.
The story went something like this:
The house had been abandoned for many years and became a place where teenagers would party on the weekends. Which is exactly what happened on a Friday Night in the early 70s. They were on the top floor of the house when they found a porthole, which they took and that led out to the beach (this is where I had a hard time with the guy’s story). When they reached the beach, one of the girls in the party realized she’d forgotten something in the house. So she went back to retrieve it. Then came shrieks from the house! The kids ran up to…

Serendipity in SilvertonTravel and Other Adventures
Yesterday morning, my husband suggested that we go on an adventure. We decided to take the back-roads to Silverton, have lunch there, and then hike at Silver Falls State Park. We haven’t ventured that way in the six years we’ve lived here. We like to listen to podcasts on long drives and this time we chose Radiolab. Imagine our surprise when we learned the second story in the episode was about Silverton, OR. Of all the stories about all of the small towns in the world the podcast was telling a story about the very town we were driving to. There was a simultaneous “WHAT THE FUCK.” Out of both of our mouths.
Above is the theater, owned by the person the story was about, Stu Rasmussen,the first transgender mayor in the United States. It’s a really great story, and if you care to listen you can do so here.
But wow. What a weird, random, coincidence. I love it when stuff like that happens!
The coincidence boded well for us as we had a fantastic day in Silverton and hiking the Trail of Ten Falls in Silver Falls State Park. Here are some iPhone snaps from the day. I brought my pinhole camera and shot the entire roll, which I will be sharing at a later date on Pinhole Obscura.
