Liking Brownsville

Yesterday we ventured out to the community of Brownsville, Or. I have posted on it once before, but now we are getting a bit more acquainted with it. I am liking it more each time we visit as it just has that special old-timey  feel to it. There was a plant sale going on and they will begin their Farmer’s Market this month. Brownsville got some popularity from the movie Stand By Me, because it was filmed there.Besides the plant sale there was a community event called Carriage Me Back to 1900. From what I heard it was a joint effort of community individuals dressed in period clothing and carriage rides were offered to the public. We did not know that it was taking place until we got to Brownsville and saw people dressed up. I was able to capture some of it.I love observing a community that pulls together to provide wholesome activities for families and all people in general. The following are photos that I took while we were on our way out-of-town. I was in the passenger seat and so it was impromptu, but I was thrilled to be able to take in what I did with my camera.

The timing was perfect for me as we drove by and this dancer came out in character to do her part for her audience, as they rode by in the carriage. Rough photography but I think captured the essence of the moment.

  1. Events like that are such fun.And I had no idea there’s a Brownsville, Oregon. I guess I missed the first mention. Anyway, I assumed you were in Brownsville, Texas! Not quite – no palm trees and white sand in your photos. That’s ok. Any town that has plant sales and farmers’ markets is ok by me!
