Signs

Today we're sharing some interesting signs that photographers found as they captured images for Project Dayshoot. Old or new, they add character to their communities.

It's hard to miss the creative signage on the Nite Hawk Cafe & Lounge on the corner of Interstate Ave & Rosa Parks Way in the Arbor Lodge neighborhood of North Portland. The Nite Hawk, in various incarnations, has existed since 1931. Bill and Elaine Mildenberger bought it in the early 80s and over the years, along with their son Bill, have remodeled and renovated it to become a neighborhood favorite for tasty food & good local company.

Churches

A few of our photographers sought out and photographed some of the many beautiful churches nestled in small towns all over Oregon. Today we're sharing three photos that really capture the spirit of three distinct churches.

The Church of the Living Waters on the Burns Paiute Reservation. Not much has changed since Keith photographed for this project back in 1983 other than the addition of a wheelchair ramp.  Photo by Keith Skelton
