I went for a walk the other day in a tiny town near me called Myrtle Point, and it was interesting. Small towns in this part of Oregon are mostly crumbling apart, which makes them rather sad places to live (especially with the amount of rain and cloudy weather we get here), but good sources for photos. I only had about an hour, so there were several spots I wasn't able to get to, and I'd like to go back eventually. Out of the dozen or so photos I got, I like four of them.

I wonder who's paying the taxes for those buildings?

I don't think I've seen that type of bell before, but at least I know what to do with it.

I doubt they have large enough congregations based on the town's populations to keep the buildings looking saintly. Processed these through PE8. Hopefully I will get another chance to go down that way, as there are many more interesting sights. I might even get the courage up to photograph some of the denizens, although I don't count that among one of my strong suits!
