Weathering and Peeling Paint

Weathering and Peeling Paint

This is one of the bunkers at Fort Worden State Park. The steel doors are rusting and the paint is peeling (there’s uncertainty as to how long since they have been painted).

A great opportunity for abstract, still life photography.

Bunker Door

I was walking the paths in Fort Worden State Park when I caught a flash of bright red off to the side. It was the sun catching the rust on this bunker door. From a straight on view, the red isn’t quite as brilliant as it was with the sun at a reflecting angle, but I love the patterns.

Back Door


Getting off the main street and walking the alleys and access streets is a great way to find new and visually exciting spots. This door looks like it has seen better days… and the building is just a little bit scary with the cracks and patches.

This is one of the door to the old powerhouse at Fort Worden State Park in Port Townsend, WA. I’m not sure how well it operates now (the door, not the powerhouse). I would love to hear it being opened… I bet it really screeches.
