Bending Together, Oregon 2015

Oregon with the Gals!

Another memorable photographic trip with  the ever so talented  Susan Bein and Tess Durham!
Next time I will bring a hat!  and dress is black!

We spent a lovely weekend in Astoria, Oregon, concentrating on photographing older buildings, forts and miscellaneous quirkie images we saw along the way.  I was carrying my Canon 5D II while Susan and Tess were photographing with Iphones and tablets.   I must admit I was a bit jealous seeing them use smaller cameras while I lugged around my Canon 5D with three lenses and backpack!  The good news is  I am very happy with many of my images from this excursion, and of course the time spent with these ladies was most memorable!

This is just a sampling of some of the images taken in Astoria Oregon!
I am eager to do another trip with Susan and Tess.  Maybe the grit of Los Angeles is in the future?
Susan makes LA a fun adventure.  This is not a destination I would pick without Susan being such a great guide.  Thanks Ladies for the fun weekend in Astoria!
