Welcome to Collective Shoot #664
~My Town~
August 1 -- August 7, 2019

Where you post pictures taken between Thursday (August1) starting at 12:00AM (your time zone) running thru Midnight of the following Wednesday (August 7) (your time zone)

Share with us views of your town---the good, the bad and the ugly, and everything in between. What makes it home for you? What is is known for? What can you make fun of?

Here are some archived shots to get you primed. (I realized I don't have many pictures of Moscow . . . . )

1. Panoramic view from the south.

2. The Old High School, now the 1912 Building, a "community center"

3. University of Idaho, Morrill Hall (it's a Land Grant Campus) on the left, the Old Memorual Gym on the right, and some new monstrosity (physics) center.

4. Old barn on the city/state line. Probably the first DSLR shot I took. The barn is now mostly gone. Shot in 2000?

5. Every prairie has its castles.

6. An earlier incarnation of BoookPeople of Moscow, an independent book store that is almost 45 years old. My wife spending my our hard-earned money!

Now, do like me and go out and shoot (but first, coffee).
Great and appealing shooting here, Nick. I've always wanted to get out to the Palouse with a camera, and we almost made it today coming back home the 500 miles from Twin Falls, but we only got at far east as Yakima & Kennewick before having to drop south. Thanks for hosting, will try to drop a few snaps once we equilibrate (and do laundry!).

We should plan to meet up someday. I'm long over due for a trip to CO. And yes, TwinFalls is best seen in the rear view mirror :eek:

my retirement town - Otaki Beach on New Zealands Kapiti Coast, about 60 miles north of Wellington.

The first shot I flew the drone from a car park near the beach to capture a panorama - 8 shots stichced. left is north, right is south. The sea is the Tasman between NZ and our West Island (Australia). Our house is about 2/3 along the image, third street back

Took my camera along with me to the Farmer's Market. Unfortunately my wife is out of town and I was the chief bag hauler and box carrier, as well as photographer-in-chief, all at the same time. Fortunately the Z6 25-70 f/5 combo is easy to carry on an OpTech sling.

1. Moscow has the oldest Farmer's Market in Idaho, now in its 42nd year. It takes over 4-5 blocks of downtown every Saturday from the first Sat in May to the last one in October---rain, shine, snow or smoke.

Besides the obvious food, produce, arts etc., there is lots of every kind.And being a college town, funky stuff too. These guys, play about 20 different "instruments" from the conventional to kazoos, a foot-powered bag-pipe, a tap-dancer (standing) various accordions and whistles. They were doing a fabulous rendition of Beethoven's "Ode to Joy" when I shot this! And being college kids, their spelling is original!

3. Run by 3 of my former students, Deep Roots pioneered the use of small-lot farming in town. This was our second week of REAL tomatoes!

6. Besides saving and repurposing the old school/1912 building (in my intro pics) we also did the same for the old Post Office/Federal Building. Built in 1911, it served until 1969. It was placed on the national register for historical buildings in 1973 and renovated, and now serves as City Hall.

Nice images Phil. Love the reference to "West Island". Although they might not.

Interesting and enjoyable set Nick. Totally agree with you about the federal building. Shame your wine/beer/cheese shop was shut. Question: what was the purpose of the cups and saucers on the Brush Creek Farms stand? Do they grow tea?

Love all of these. We have a similar farmer's market, although ours hasn't been going for as many years. We were there last Saturday and it was so crowded, but most people were buying food from the fast food vendors. It's neat that the historic buildings are being preserved. They are doing that here as well in the older downtown area. I've only been to Moscow once (for a wedding, on campus). I need to visit there again!! It looks like such a pretty place.

Excellent, Nick, and they look remarkably like what I'm about to post from Blacksburg.
