Missing Photographs

I’ve looked through some photographs that I’ve taken over the last couple of years looking for a series of photographs that I took with my iPhone or Canon camera while I was staying at Lake Tahoe. I took this series of photos back in the Fall of 2014, apparently, I didn’t back up my phone with these specific photos with my dogs while Lily Lake near Fallen Leaf Lake in the Sierra Nevada’s. They were on my phone that I wrecked in the fall of 2014 and couldn’t and wasn’t able to use the contents of the phone; let alone to erase the phone before I was able to send it in after I got the replacement phone. Another possibility is that I might have deleted these specific photo’s but I doubt that I did that.

Portland’s Rose Quarter and the Willamette River along with Flowering Cherry Trees

I took these photos at the Japanese American Historical Park with some Flowering Cherry Trees and in the background and across the Willamette River in the Convention Center and Moda Center; along with the Steel Bridge. One of the photos is a little part of the east bank of the Willamette River and there is a part of Interstate 5 that runs on the east side of Portland. There is a map below the photographs of where I took these.

Another update of sorts

Hello All

Its been a little while since I last posted on this site and looks like that it would be some time before I would post anything of substance. At the moment blogging is not really at or near the top of the list of doing stuff – including posting photos that I took at Lake Tahoe, CA or anywhere else that I took photos at in my road trips of the last couple of years. Plus, I haven’t been to keen on spending the time on editing photos on the back-end of the site – like the alt tags, description, and so on giving the number of photos that I would like to upload on to this site. If there was a way to mass edit this type of info on a number of photos at one time would be great, but I don’t see how it could be done in WordPress.

Another Sunset Photo at Fallen Leaf Lake

The photograph below I took a few moments after the photo in the last post. In this photograph that I took with a Samsung phone – I’m looking towards the North – Northeast end of the lake.

Here is sunset taken at Fallen Leaf Lake, CA along route 89. It was a generally overcast day. Looking towards North by Northeast.

Overcast Sunset at Fallen Leaf Lake

Below is a photograph of a sunset that took one evening on Fallen Leaf Lake back in mid-October 2014 and I took it with my Samsung phone that I had at that time. It was looking towards the Northwest corner of the lake.

Enjoy.

A Video on A Windy Lake

This video is now hosted on Vimeo instead of YouTube because I wanted to try Vimeo for sometime. The video below filmed in October 2014 when I was staying near South Lake Tahoe last year. I might move all of my videos to Vimeo but I’m sure I will yet.

Enjoy and leave a like or a comment below. Peter.

Train Trip Through California

Here are some photographs that I took with my iPad on my way up to Oregon from Arizona. I managed a way to get to school and since I didn’t have my Canon Camera with me to take photographs the “next” best thing to do – is to take a couple of photographs with my iPad.

Granted these aren’t of the best quality of photographs which is kind of expected with a 1 and 1/2 old iPad.

These were between Paso Robles, CA and Salinas, CA except for the body of water in the gallery. Think I took the photograph in Oregon but not sure.

The Amtrak line that took these photos were on the Coast Starlight.

An old Fire Pit that is no longer being used that is made out of stone..

An Old Fire Pit

Here is some photographs of an old fire pit at my families place at South Lake Tahoe. Used to use this fire pit up to the mid 1980’s.

I swept away the top layer of pine needles to expose the old fire pit so I could take a photo of it from different angles. The fire pit hasn’t been used in over 30 years. As far as I know there’s no plans to use it ever again – giving the fire danger of the region.

Though, what I would like to do with it is to “dress it up” with benches and a table in the middle that would re-purpose the spot to eat outdoors.

There are a lot of things that I want to do with the place that I stayed at last year and it come’s down to money and time (another post for another time).

A pair of ducks that swimming along in front of a beach that I'm on.

More Duck Videos

Here is a pair of videos that I’ve made while I was at Fallen Leaf Lake, CA. It’s of one Duck that came onto the beach that I was at and next to one of the docks at the property that I was staying at last fall.

These videos were taken at the beginning of September 2014.


Here is a second part video that I took of a duck:
