José Argumedo Diaz moves a 12' ladder to the next tree for cutting blight in a Cormice pear orchard. He's paid $9/hour by Meyer Orchards for the seasonal work. He likes working outdoors, but would prefer to have a year-round "steady" full-time job to support his family (a wife and three children). His employer, the Meyer family, has been growing and selling pears in Talent for 103 years.  Photo by Betty Udesen

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.
