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.
I like riding ferries… and that’s a good thing, since there are so many involved in getting to and from Port Townsend (where I live). I struggled with the decision about going Black and White with these … they were, of course, heavily into shades of blue. Decided to go B&W partly from having just browsed through a few Lee Friedlander books.
