Day 341 - Foiled by raindrops
A rather wet day here in Salem, Oregon. Damn!
According to weather.com, I had about an hour to snag that photo of the day. And it was gonna be a bonus round 'cause I had three ideas for the photo.
1st stop, no rain but OMG, it was way to dark.
2nd stop, no rain but good lord I was gonna be blinded by the construction lights. Holy crap, dim those lights, isn't there some energy crisis or something?
3rd stop, EUREKA! Twinkly lights, Salem history.
This is the second image before the skies once again opened up and I might add 20 minutes earlier than weather.com predicted.
So, this is the back of the Mission Mill Museum. The mill itself was built in 1896. I had every intention of going to the end of this building and taking a picture of the mill, until my lens began collecting rain drops.
Rest assured, I am not easily discouraged. I shall return.
