Bollards in Astoria

A photo of rectangular granite bollards, set in an apparently infinitely receding series near the Astoria Column, complement reflections on historic Lewis and Clark landmarks and how nice it is to have dry feet.  Oh yeah, and food.

To Infinity and Beyond


Astoria, Oregon is a good place to get fresh fish,  sand dollars, a view of the Pacific, and your feet wet.

Lewis and Clark named nearby sites Cape Disappointment and Dismal Nitch.  Whaddya think?  Was their fun meter pegged?

This shot was taken in the parking lot of the Astoria Column and reminded me irresistibly of Buzz Lightyear.

    I like it – I like the symmetry, and the look of the granite. Nice photo, and brings back good memories of Astoria.

      Many thanks. Sometimes these “things receding into the distance” photos seem to work, and sometimes not. I bet a professional would know why – whether I could understand and execute, that’s a different matter! I loved picking up sand dollars from the beach near-ish to Astoria and would go again in a heartbeat.
