Sights Around Port Townsend

Jefferson County Courthouse

Port Townsend was one of the earliest towns established in Washington State. While not a large town even now, it has a lot of interesting architecture that makes photography a pleasant diversion.

The back side of this building was part of a mural. Unfortunately, in this case, the mural was tagged. I found the mess of wiring to be an interesting visual.

Gas and Electric

Gas Meters

I found some of the gas meters and electrical distribution to be quite interesting visually. Some dressed up fancy, some plain.

Back Doors

Back Door 1

These images are from a recent photo trip to Olympia. We walked around the various alleys and loading areas. There were a mix of levels of graffiti. The downtown area was very much run down and semi-deserted, due to the lack of workers in downtown buildings. The result has been the closure of many retail spaces that made a significant percent of their business from the lunch crowd.

Back Door 2

This was a bit of a puzzle. But I expect that someone left the steel door retracted and the tagging took place.

Back Door 3

My guess on this area is that the owners/tenets make an effort to keep the area freshly painted each time additional tagging takes place. That is one approach. The other is to hire murals painted. This approach works most of the time, and some of the future blog posts show some of the murals of downtown Olympia.
