gary_olsonI am an amateur photographer who has fallen in love with La Grande Oregon.

Being new to La Grande and the Grande Ronde Valley, I may see it from a different perspective than folks who have lived here forever. I am trying to capture that perspective in my photography.

Where some might see a run down alley I might see a quaint and picturesque street scene reminiscent of what you might find in Europe. Where others might see a run down old building I might see an image of the historic old West.

My aim is to capture those images and perspectives and share them with anyone who is interested.

My intention is to regularly add new photos and cull out old ones in an ongoing effort to capture the essence of this fascinating community. The site is new, so there aren’t a great many photos on it yet. Over time, I expect it will evolve into something quite unique. I hope you enjoy watching it evolve.

This web site is purely a hobby. My work is not copyrighted, so feel free to share it if you want. If you find anything on this site you find objectionable, let me know and I will remove it immediately.

If you find something you like, please get in contact with me. I am always eager to meet people who are interested in what I am doing.
