Oh dear, it appears that the site won't have a picture for the next few months!

That's hard to believe.  I'm looking forward to some submissions from Okkichan, Newell the Jewel, ManicMaurice, Harlan, stickb0y7, kempsternyc and Daisy to name a few.....

I'm out this time around. Working on Cirque's show Banana Shpeel and unfortunately don't have the time right now.

But I'll be back next time. :mrgreen:

I no longer have a Flickr account so I'm stuck doing this the old fashioned way.

I don't think the pictures of bridges capture Astoria. That's the view of the city, with the bridges, and the river, standing in Astoria. They are pretty and they are taken while in Astoria, but why don't we turn the cameras the other way around?
Have you been brainwashed today?

I'm so happy to see the submissions in this thread. I wish I had the camera and the skillz to produce a good Astoria picture.

I must say, as much as I love the bridge shots, I'm kinda craving something different. So far I am loving the trees picture from Daisy and Lanseaux's street scene.

I'll be ok with any picture across the top, as long as it includes the phrase "Astorians.com...It's So Totally Astoria!"  :-D
