On July 8, 2017, I spent the afternoon at McMenamins Edgefield — in Troutdale, Oregon, on the eastern edge of the Portland metro area — to celebrate the property’s 106th birthday.

The previous year I explored Edgefield for a full 25 hours over two days — check out A McMenamins Edgefield Summer Sol­stice for an overview, and for links to the associated articles and photo albums. You can also check out a listing of all my Edge­field-​related articles and Edgefield photo albums.

Throughout the afternoon, I celebrated the birthday with samples of 5 different wines with chips and salsa, 3 different types of beer, a 2 hour concert featuring my favorite Portland band, Bigfoot Mojo, a photogenic antipasti plate, a truly scrumptious whiskey bread pudding, and more!

During the concert I shot 318 photos as well as 14 video clips which total nearly 19 minutes. Three of those videos have been posted on YouTube. With 36 of the best photos I put together a 55-​second slideshow video of the captivating bassist, Belinda Underwood, which is also on YouTube.

Besides the 318 photos I shot of Bigfoot Mojo, I also took 143 other pictures at Edgefield that day. The best 59 are presented in this album.

The photos in this album were taken with the Olympus OM-D E-M5 camera.
