Much the same angle from the backyard, just near sunset last month as Summer ebbed.
A tree turning fall colors on our street at mid-October
The base of a redwood tree, planted in Lithia Park in 1922.
The view from the bottom of the twin redwoods. Majestic towers indeed!
" Whatever you're thinking of doing, don't!"
The Lithia Bandshell, where the Ashland City Band performs on Summer nights, and July 4th festivities. It also is where students from the local university, Southern Oregon, hold their graduations.
The Park again, this time near the Japanese Gardens.
Here's one not like the others: A fuzzy shot of me at the City Lights Bookstore, on Broadway in San Francisco, circa 1992.
A rather large mushroom (or toadstool), the most impressive fungus in the neighborhood.
The Elizabethan Stage at The Oregon Shakespeare Festival. Last year the eleven plays shown over eight months at the three festival stages averaged an 89% attendance rate. I saw "Taming of the Shrew here and there are also plays this year by Tennessee Williams and a variety of modern writers. This set was for "Cymbeline" I believe.
The plaza at the Elizabethan Theatre. Just to the right is the indoor "Bowmer Theatre", named for the festival founder, Angus Bowmer. The "Green Show" is an open-air presentation of various cultural music and dance productions on a rotating basis, available for free during the summer months.
The walkway up to the Bowmer Theater. The official name of the theater area was "Chautauqua Park". In the late 19th/Early 20th Century this area was set up for presentation of the annual Chautauqua adult lecture and musical entertainment circuit. The movement, which featured social, scientific and political leaders and experts expounding on topic of the day, and band and opera music. provided cultural diversions for people outside the major cities in the America Middle and Far West. The term was coined from where the movement started in the 1880s in Chautauqua, New York state. Here's some more information, courtesy of Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chautauqua
