(View the full collection on my FEATURED page!)

A couple months ago, I received a call with an opportunity to travel down the Oregon Coast. I didn’t even give myself time to think twice. It had already been a couple years since I started looking for the time, and resources to visit the northwest. So I jumped at the chance.

The last week in May my trip started at the northern part of the coast, in a sleepy little town called Oceanside. The rental home had the vast open water to the west, and the lush green forest on every other side. What a dream!

My next couple days would be spent cruising up and down the beaches, wading in freezing cold water, and visiting near by attractions. Along with Oceanside and Tillamook, one city I couldn’t wait to day trip to was Astoria, on the far northern tip of the coast. (For those who love the “Goonies,” this is a must see place.)

Astoria was a busy, port town with much to see and do. I took my time traveling up the coast, stopping to shoot, shop in antique stores and enjoy the scenery. After finally reaching Astoria, I stumbled across an awesome photo gallery, Lightbox Photographic, that not only had photography I loved, but also my other obsession — vintage cameras!

After perusing the city and visiting galleries, I finished the day with a beer and burger at the Buoy Beer Co. located on the river. (Talk about an awesome view to enjoy a brew!)

Towards the end of the week it was time to move south to the next stop: Bandon, OR, a small but active town, with adorable vintage shops and galleries. The travel time made for a long but beautiful drive, stopping at beaches the whole way. When we finally arrived to Bandon, I had to stare in awe at the beautifully remodeled shoe store we were about to stay in. With an open floor plan, two stories, airy beach decor, and an ocean view, it made me fall in love.

I made sure to make my last few days in state worth while- getting up early and staying out late.  Oregon has become, by far, one of my top favorite places I’ve visited in the United States. So until I can return, a piece of my heart stays in the Pacific Sun.

The Underground – New Featured Collection!

It’s about that time to publish another featured collection, one that I’m particularly excited about! This brand new, never seen before series is titled, “The Underground.”

On my mini vacation to South Dakota, I was fortunate enough to take a tour through a winding maze of stalagmites and stalactites, deep underground. In my (probably bias) opinion, the results were amazing!

With scattered, dimly lit lights, the caves natural beauty sprung to life. Most of the images I couldn’t bring myself to do any adjusting or adding of filters. The simple, organic beauty of the unedited images were too breathtaking.

Visit my websites “Featured” page to view all the images from “The Underground!”

Featured Collections have arrived!

January 26, 2015

Today’s post is going to be short, sweet and to the point. BUT, it’s definitely one for readers to take note of! ——— In the last few months, I have not only been updating the overall look of my website, but I have also been adding lots of new features and services! As the new things come into play, I will post about them individually. So for now, I wanted to take a moment to highlight and explain about the new “Photography Featured Collections!!” Featured Collections are exactly what they imply– photo series being highlighted during a certain time period. I have decided this is the perfect way to give each series the attention it deserves! 🙂

 

Featured

 

To kick off this new element, the first few featured collections are series that have already previously been published online. The chosen collection theme will be listed on the homepage of the website (as shown above), and the images themselves can be found on the “Featured” page.

 

Please keep an eye out, on WordPress & Facebook, for when a new collection has been published, because I will be posting about it! The current collection is entitled “Abandoned Nebraska,” and can be viewed on my Featured page now. * Wink Wink * (You should probably click HERE and check it out!) 🙂

 

As mentioned before, I am working on site updates to make this a more convenient process, and will also post about those changes when they come about. Thank you all who currently follow me! If you would like to get updates from Noel Photograph & Design, on your WordPress & Facebook, be sure to hit that “LIKE” or “FOLLOW” button!

Happy Creating! 🙂
