Tiny House in a Landscape

Deschutes River Cabin

My son Ted and I spent Thanksgiving this year on our own. My wife Janelle’s mother had open heart surgery so she has been down with her. Our daughter Emily stayed in Portland and celebrated Thanksgiving with friends.

We decided to find a place that served a traditional Thanksgiving meal and was open on the holiday and ended up at the Riverhouse Restaurant. While eating our dinner we spotted this old log cabin across the river and decided to check it out when we were done. Turns out it has a pretty interesting history. Copyright Photo by Kent Griswold

The cabin was used by the Old Sterns Cattle Company as a mine shack in the early 1900s along the Lazy River, south of Sunriver, Oregon.

In the 1970s, it was used in an old Western film with John Wayne and Katharine Hepburn called “Rooster Cogburn.” Shot in Smith Rock State Park, the cabin moved to this site after filming ended. A piece of old Hollywood in our little town of Bend, Oregon!

Managing Partner of the Riverhouse Hotel, Wayne Purcell, talks about the history of this cabin in the video below from Zolo Media.

Tiny House in a Landscape

Our Tiny House in a Landscape photo is from Hugh Wolfe. Not really a house, but it’s still a small structure which could be a house… well it would need a good bit of work… it’s in the middle of a farmers field (turnips).

Morning fog 10/19/14…

Fog lazily rolling around the neighborhood motivated a five minute drive to a favorite photo location which I’ve shot previously, *Out amongst the turnips* https://plus.google.com/116041918731282968084/posts/LQ7QYJJWshh

Literally sitting on the berm of the road listening for approaching vehicles I took several composures but preferred this one for the Queen Ann Lace in the foreground…

Post processing brought out the desire to create alternative images, one using Macphun’s Tonality Pro and another more traditional B&W with NIK’s Silver Efex Pro…

Enjoy?
