Did you know that pears are the state fruit of Oregon? Near Hood River, thousands of acres of pears flourish in the Columbia River Gorge beneath the snowcapped peak of Mt. Hood. Soon, the pear orchards will be in bloom with that gorgeous mountain behind them. I can’t wait!

I’ve made a dangerous new discovery. I won a raffle last week and the prize was a freshly made pie from Random Order, a coffeehouse within walking distance of my house. They bake 22 different kinds of pie. I chose this chocolate cream pie that is made with 3 different kinds of chocolate and fresh whipped cream. Wow! It’s incredible! It tastes amazing – rich, light and creamy with a yummy, flaky crust. Oh man, I’m in trouble.
Tomorrow is the my last photography class. It’s been good but I’m kind of glad it’s over. Now I am anxious to put my new skills to the test. I’m looking forward to taking the kind of photos I like to take, rather than having to focus on a weekly assignment.
On March 10 there will be an exhibit of photos taken by the students during the course of the class. We have to choose a minimum of three photos to show. They must be enlarged to at least 11×14, matted and framed. I am considering this old truck as one of my three.
The exhibit is open to anyone who wants to attend. If you’re interested in checking out the work of some up and coming local photographers, please feel free to pop in anytime between 7:45pm and 9:30pm at 813 SW Morrison (downstairs) – that’s in Portland.
