Water

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.

Oregonians at Work: Social Media Contributors

Journalism has come a long way since 1983 - video, new technologies like Gigapan and 3D photography, and citizen journalism via social media are some of the changes that we incorporated into the 30th anniversary of Oregon Project Dayshoot. This week, we're sharing some images on the theme of Oregonians at work that were captured by members of the general public who posted on social media using our #dayshoot30 tag.

Summer Fun

Oregon's beautiful summer weather is back for a bit, and there's few better ways to enjoy it than in the water - especially when you're a kid. Today's photos show kids at play in Oregon's waters.
