Photographer's Note

Bend is a city located in Deschutes County, Oregon, United States. The name Bend was derived from "Farewell Bend," the designation used by early pioneers to refer to the location along the Deschutes River, one of the few fordable points along the river. The city has done an amazing job of making its riverfront accessible and attractive. The area photographed is the former site of a logging mill. Now parks and walkways follow the river on each side; theaters, art galleries, housing, shopping and restaurants make the area an interesting destination. On the skyline, you can see Mt Bachelor, Broken Top and the Three Sisters, all part of the Cascade volcano chain. While they seem miniscule in the photo, they are a BIG presence on the Bend skyline.
The photo is dedicated to the Bend Film Festival since I was here in the early morning for a film. My favorites were, “The Road to Fallujah,” a documentary about the devastation in this city; ‘Back to the Garden,’ featuring footage from 1988 and 2007 of hippies who returned to the land to live a simple life including interviews with their now grown children; ‘The Blue Bus,’ a road trip from Los Angeles to New Orleans by two friends returning to say goodbye to another friend, the soundtrack was great jazz, and Finally, ‘The Mouse that Soared,’ an animated short. Aside from the Road to Fallujah, which more than confirmed my thoughts on the ‘liberation’ of Iraq, the other films were upbeat.

It’s also farewell Bend because we’re heading to our San Diego home for awhile.
