The creative act lasts but a brief moment, a lightning instant of give-and-take, just long enough for you to level the camera and to trap the fleeting prey in your little box.

Photo #85


Quick trip over to Baker City

We made a quick trip over to Baker City

yesterday. On our way home today we went

through La Grande and came upon

one of the oldest buildings in this town.

It was moved from it's original site to a site

above the city on a bluff by a parks walking trail. http://www.el.com/to/lagrande/

Wow, lovely photo, and neat story. It's hard to believe that such an old house could survive being moved, but I guess that just goes to show that "they don't make 'em like they used to!" Happy SWS! - G

I love this photo! It just transports you back in time.
I love the log cabin!
Is it a one room cabin or a bit larger?
Lovely

I'm visiting from 6WS. I love this picture. The building looks like it has been there forever!

Aha - weren't those the good old days!

Somehow, I've gotten rather used to indoor plumbing.

Thanks for the visit.

Cheers!
