Abstract Interiors

Wall Patterns

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.

Splattered Paint

Light Bulb Bug

Light Bulb Bug

I was inside an historic building in downtown Port Townsend, WA taking photos. I took a snap of the light fixture that was in one of the rooms (there was no electric power connected). It wasn’t until much later that I realized that there was a bug on one of the bulbs. It now draws my attention so that I hardly notice the rest of the image.

Enchanted Valley Chalet

Enchanted Valley Chalet

The Enchanted Valley is on the upper section of the East Fork of the Quinault River valley. This chalet was built back in the 1930’s and has been relocated several times to move it away from the river. There are plans to move it to a safer location … since the river keeps changing its banks. (It’s always interesting in the early summer to hear if the chalet has made it through another winter)
There is no camping allowed in the chalet itself … and I wouldn’t want to share it with all the mice, anyway. The valley has heavy usage with many people either hiking in and back out, or continuing up the valley, across Anderson Pass and down the West Fork of the Dosewallips. One of the easier hikes across the Olympic National Park.

The Paper Mill

Port Townsend Paper

A little different shot than my usual nature filled images. The common thread, I suppose, being that this was taken from the Larry Scott Trail. Port Townsend paper is the largest employer in Jefferson County.

I know there will be mixed reactions to this image … with its industrial topic and the venting of vapors into the atmosphere. But the exhaust plume on the right has particularly interesting textures.

Last Day of Winter

Horses in the Snow

Personally, I’m ready to have winter behind and springtime coming. And summer. So, here is a reminder of winter … here in Port Townsend, it was a pretty mild one with a couple of snowfalls, but nothing that created much of a long term problem.
