Personal exercise is not restricted. Nature is just a few miles away. Pick up your bike and connect with nature instead of the social network. It’s safe to get the young children out in the open but away from the crowd. This is Oregon Living.
Where do I begin… I had my first listing in Oregon. Oregon announced the first case of coronavirus… My birding trip was canceled… I had the first open house and accepted a full price offer on the second day of the open house… Eugene and Springfield area (where I live) had the first and secondContinue reading “Stay Home”
Twenty-five years ago when I decided to move to Oregon, my whole family objected to the ‘crazy’ idea. I met a new in-law at the wedding. He earnestly shook my hands (happy to know you) and immediately lifted his eyebrows in uncertainty when Oregon was mentioned. “Oregon? will I ever go there?” Oregon is closeContinue reading “Diversity”
A clear and bright winter day is precious since Oregonian’s slogan is ‘rain or shine, business as usual.’ We packed up our cameras and went on a birding drive. Within a 25 mins drive distance from home, we had great fun ‘capturing’ various flyers. In Oregon, when you are out of the house, you areContinue reading “Oregon Lifestyle – what to do?”
On the recent trip to California for a family matter, I saw California is not as brown as it used to. The snowfall has passed down south, and water enriched the land. Interstate 5 is the primary channel to connect California and Oregon. I barely used my camera inside California, but when the scenery beganContinue reading “Oregon Lifestyle – 2”
When I moved to Oregon more than two decades ago, one of my sales reps said to me, “What’s in Oregon besides Nature and Sports?” She said, ” Oregonians have nothing to do, and that’s why you go to the ball games.” I know it is our work relationship that she did not want meContinue reading “Oregon lifestyle – why live in Oregon?”
and Celebrate the coming New Year 2020. It has not been a prolific photography and writing year due to my new real estate endeavor. I hope to plan and manage my time more effectively in the coming year. Double 20, double duty. At this point, I am going for it, no giving up.
Life is unpredictable. Intended to photograph architecture and real estate houses for fun and include some work in my retirement, I ended up being a licensed realtor in California. It’s great fun to find the best angle of view to photograph a house and present it to potential buyers. And, the ultimate reward is toContinue reading “From photography to real estate”
Thought I took a short break… to my surprise, this recess has taken three months!!! I just came back from a trip to Vietnam where I have long desired to go. An untouched rural scene is what I envisioned about the landscape. However, I seemed not getting much opportunity to capture any except this oneContinue reading “A long pause”
One month flew by since I last posted. How would I ever chase Time and catch up with it? It is apparent to me that I cannot permit my camera in Rest mold too long… The day could have been better if the sun was not so overpowering. The light could have been better ifContinue reading “Simply Dahlias”
