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.

Sunset Downtown Port Townsend

Sunset Downtown Port Townsend

This is back to digital imaging and shows “rush hour” on Water Street in downtown Port Townsend. It is busy in the summertime and on weekends the rest of the year … but gets really quiet during the week.

I like it that way.

In the distance, you can see the sun setting behind the Northeast corner of the Olympic Mountains.

Black and White Brownie Shots

Tree Shadows on Building

These are images taken on 620 Tri-X at Fort Worden State Park in Port Townsend on the Kodak Brownie Flash Six-20. (and I remembered to wind the film between shots this time)

The images are “soft” … but that is typical of cameras of this design … using a single lens element.

This was the first roll of film that I shot with this camera and I was taking images as I walked around Fort Worden State Park … trying to get the 8 shots taken so I could send the roll in to be developed. I no longer process my own images … finding it much more convenient to use commercial labs who process and provide you with scans. I use “The Darkroom” in California … and find they are wonderful to work with.
