Looking Up

Looking Up

I was waiting for a service representative in a warehouse store recently when I looked up and noticed the open network of pipes and other parts of the infrastructure. I thought it was an interesting pattern and worth a photo … a lot more than a photo of the service desk.

By the way, I was waiting to be fitted for hearing aids. I don’t have a lot of loss … mostly a reduction in high frequency sounds typical of folks my age. The first thing I really noticed a difference in after getting them was in hearing a lot more birdsong … well worth the extra money and minor hassle. So, I encourage you all to have your hearing checked regularly. You may not realize what you’re missing.

Doors

Doors (color)

I really liked the patina that these old doors have developed over time. I had someone tell me that this used to be a mule barn back in the day when Fort Worden State Park was an active military base (over 100 years ago).

Below is another door from Ft Worden, this one on a different building. The stairs to access the doors are gone, but I love the way the boards create such a nice contrasting pattern to the siding.

Just a Little Bit Crooked

Just A Little Bit Crooked

When I took this image into the Lightroom Development Module and was cropping, I REALLY struggled trying to square it up. But when I stepped back a moment, I realized that there just wasn’t anything I could adjust to make everything square. It reflects the old building just the way it was … crooked stairs and all. Sometimes reality just isn’t squared up. This was shot with a Nikon F6 on Kodak Tri-X … so black and white film … so the grain in the image reflects the film grain.

Marina Sunset

Marina Sunset

In late November and December, through mid-February, the sun sets behind the Olympic Mountains as seen from Port Townsend. This view looks over the city marina, home of most of the boatbuilding activity in town (one of the larger employer groups … but no single employer comes close to the number of employees of Port Townsend Paper.

The Mill

Port Townsend Paper Mill

Port Townsend Paper is the largest employer in the town, so it is usually just referred to as “the mill”. In this image you can see the northeast corner of the Olympic Mountains in the background.
