Walking along the beach at Fort Worden State Park in Port Townsend, WA, I noticed these two pieces of seaweed sticking out of the sand. The curved shapes and shadows attracted my eye.
These were taken in the historic Hastings building in downtown Port Townsend. The building is not open to the public (except for shops on the ground floor) and its future is uncertain at this time. Hopefully, it will be renovated and the wonderful woodwork restored. In the meantime, some of the mess is visually interesting.

One of the batteries at Fort Worden State Park, Port Townsend, WA.
I enjoy the patterns of moss, oxidation and weathering paint that these World War I relicts provide. A photographer’s feast.

This window is from one of the battlements at Fort Worden State Park and one that is readily accessible to visitors. As such, it has been ‘tagged’ numerous times over the years. The park approach is to paint over the tags. Between the pealing paint, normal discolor with aging and the tag removal touch up paint, the color patterns can be very visually interesting.
