This is a small public beach that sits right in the middle of downtown Port Townsend. There is a small square with tables for people to sit and eat pizza or drink coffee (the two closest options and both of which are excellent). If you click on the photo for the larger version, you will see a board in the lower right corner with the words: “Tell the Truth”. A good recommendation.
This is downtown Port Townsend and the old ferry dock. In the background is the ferry heading over to the ‘new’ terminal about 1/4 mile … at the other end of downtown PT. I noticed the kingfisher sitting on the cables running between the pilings, and wished I had my telephoto lens (too heavy to carry around just in case). And Mt Rainier behind the mast of the sailboat is also a minor picture element. I like the combination of these … but it really breaks one of the rules of photography: the subject should be easy to recognize. Here, there are too many separate picture elements. But, I like it anyway.
Lincoln Park in Seattle is a great place for walking. Decades ago, I lived across the street from it and it sill is a favorite. In the view above, the ferry is the Fauntleroy/Vashon/Southworth dock at Fauntleroy.
These two shots were taken from the same location. The one below is looking north towards Alki Point.
This isn’t my typical composition. But I was attracted to the stark lines and muted colors.
Shot with a Nikon F6 on Portra 400.
This is the view after departing Bainbridge Island on the way across Puget Sound to Seattle. In the distance are the Olympic Mountains. I was on my way to the region’s biggest camera store. It’s always a good day when you get to go to a camera store, but not always this nice of weather.
