An urban still life.
I consider myself very fortunate to be able to live in a small town in a truly spectacular setting. These are more photos from my recent ferry ride across to Coupeville and back. These images show the return to Port Townsend.
The image above shows the Olympic Mountains in the distance and most of the Port Townsend waterfront. The image below shows the Port Townsend ferry dock with the Kennewick ferry sitting in the auxiliary dock. The Kennewick is used for service while other boats are in maintenance and (except for Covid times) during heavy volume weekends (holidays, etc.).
I took a ferry ride the other day and while it was clear and sunny when we left the ferry dock, we soon moved into a fog bank. So much for capturing any whale photos! But during the transition to fog, there were some interesting photos of the shoreline as the fog burned off.
Once in a while I will go out shooting and forget to download the images to my computer when I get home. And sometimes I will then start using a different camera for a while … variety being the spice, they say.
Both of these images were ones that I had in the camera for longer than I would admit. But a pleasant surprise when I finally saw them. I wish I had taken the mushroom in a focus stack so the depth of field was greater … but I still like the image.
First: None of these are mine. I do kayaking or canoeing. I like sailboats okay, though.
This is the Point Hudson Marina in Port Townsend. This is the site of the Wooden Boat Festival … the first weekend after Labor Day. One of the biggest events in town.
Technical note: this is a panorama from two images on 120 film. First time I had tried to combine film images like this. I think I’ll try some more… it seemed to work real well. Even though the camera was hand held.
