"It relaxes me," says Dene Bish, of James Excell's Celtic folk harp music. "It alleviates my headaches, reduces tension, tremors and rigidity. Often the effects will last through the evening, until I go to sleep." Bish suffers from Multiple Systems Atrophy and is under hospice care in her home. She looks forward to weekly visits from Excell.
Biking is both recreation and an important mode of transportation for people throughout Oregon, and our photographers captured many images of bikes and their riders. Today we're sharing a few of them.
Our image collection was created in the summer (a year ago next Tuesday July 15th!), so quite a few of the photos feature water, a key part of an Oregon summer, for recreation, gardening, and as a key feature of our beautiful state.
Summer is almost here, and it looks like this weekend will give us another taste! In anticipation of all the fun we can have out on the water in the coming months, today we're sharing photos of a few Oregon children enjoying Oregon rivers, lakes and reservoirs.
It sure feels like summer out there! In honor of the warmth outside, today's installment of our Oregonians at Work series features jobs done in the heat.

This week we're sharing a video by Fritz Liedtke of a ballet dancer at Oregon Ballet Theater. Liedtke spent part of his day during the dayshoot at OBT in Portland's Summer Intensive class. That day, the class was taught by Roudolf Kharatian, artistic director of the National Ballet of Armenia.
Hosted by the Columbia Center for the Arts in Hood River and with the generous support of Pro Photo Supply, we're excited to announce an exhibit of our images for the month of June. The month-long exhibit will kick off on Thursday June 5th at 7pm with an evening presentation by four Hood River photographers who participated in the project: Paloma Ayala, Peter Marbach, Thomas Boyd, and Blue Ackerman. You can see a little taste of their work below. We hope to see you at the Columbia Center for the Arts in June!
For many Oregonians, a day in Oregon means a day spent at work. Today we're sharing a few more photos of Oregonians at work, part of an ongoing series. Check out the others in the series too:
Spring has arrived and the longer days and buds on the trees have got us thinking about new life. Luckily, several of our photographers captured images that show life's beginning in a variety of ways.
