Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge (Day Four): Late Afternoon Delight

Thanks to Helen over at HHC Blog asked me to join along in the fun of the Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge.  If you don’t know her you should check out her blog.

The rules of Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge require you to post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo (It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or simply a short paragraph) and then nominate another blogger to carry on this challenge. Accepting the challenge is entirely up to the person nominated, it is not a command.

Today I would like to invite Far Out In Africa to play along in this fun challenge.  I am just getting to Far Out in Africa.  If you have not checked out this blog, you will be amazed and delighted by the storytelling photography.

Here is my photo for today.


This is a photo I took in the late afternoon at our favorite park in Canby.  The Canby Community Park has the Molalla River running to one side of where there is a boat ramp.  This park has a pond for fishing (disabled people or 17 years and younger).  It is home for duck, geese, muskrat, squirrels and other birds.  There is a huge center part with lots of trees.  The Boy Scouts have a huge a Frame Cabin and a little amphitheater.  It is just the perfect little park.

The first time Chris and I discovered Canby, we drove through this park and just fell in love with the entire city.  We moved from Beaverton (suburb of Portland) out to the country within the next year.  We can’t really think of another place to live anywhere in the world.  Aside from maybe have a summer home in Alaska near Ketchikan.

I love sitting that bench and just taking photos of anything that interests me, especially when the sun it shining and the water glistening. The little hill in the background is actually a huge pile of gravel and dirt, but in the black and white version of this photo it looks more natural.

  1. What a beautiful setting and photo. I want to be on that bench admiring the rays of the sun. Ω


    • I like the Molalla River State Park too. This Park is on the other side of town off of 99. Turn south at the light at Safeway you will you see the park entrance to the right.


      • Ok great, I will definitely check it out when I’m out that way again. I go out to Mulino every Saturday to hang out with my brother and to crack the whip on him and hubby to get my Bronco done.


  2. Cee, thank you So much for inviting me to join in the fun! I am honoured and delighted. And also very excited.
    Just a note – we have been experiencing some out of season thuderstorms lately so our internet connection and electricity supply are misbehaving quite badly. So I *may* not be able to post every day, but promise to do so whenever I am able. (I might even schedule a few posts right now, just in case – I have half the morning off work 🙂 )
    Those sunbeams shining down onto that bench are beautiful!


    • I skipped a day. Just get your five days in when you can. I sure hope you don’t have too much time down because of internet or electrical problems. Stay safe and dry.
