The seastacks in Bandon are one of my favorite spots on the entire Oregon Coast. Unfortunately the Bandon Cheese Factory which had incredible ice cream is no longer in existence.

COMPUTER - Have been having real problems with my computer. Spent most of yesterday with AppleCare. Have ordered a new MacBook Pro. I have photographs posted through September 11. However, if I don't show up commenting or responding, you will know why.

it's so unreal, it is open imagination, on another planet where the sand and stone are almost white and veiled in a suspect mist . the atmosphere is indescribable, almost a malaise from which emerges an extreme poetry, great shot, Jack ..:)

OH, you just broke my heart. Well I must explain. And it is only because of the impact this image has on me. I have been anxious to get away, it hasn't been possible.

WOW!
