Moon Jellies

Moon Jellies

I have been looking through my library to find photos related to water. I found this one that shows moon jellyfish in Budd Bay in Olympia, Washington. I liked the reflection of my kayak paddle to give some sense of scale to the cloud of jellies. In the summer, the moon jelly population can explode … a result of stagnate water, I believe.

Fishermen’s Terminal

Fishermen’s Terminal (1)

I was recently at the Fishermen’s Terminal in Seattle having some fish and chips for dinner. (It’s fresh!!!)

After eating we walked a bit along the docks. It was night and I took a couple photos to see how the cameras would do. One is captured with my cell phone the other with my Nikon Z7ii. There’s not much difference at this magnification … and I was surprised at how well each did, considering it was dark and I was hand holding the camera/phone.

Looking Downwind

Looking Downwind

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.

Can The Fishes See It Snowing?

Can The Fishes See It Snowing?

I was downtown along the waterfront several days before Christmas and saw this scene. It reminded me of the phrase in Dylan Thomas’s A Child’s Christmas in Wales, where a small boy ponders: “Can the fishes see it snowing?”

Sadly, it wasn’t actually snowing at the time, and two days later it was all gone. I think it’s nice to have snow at Christmas, as long as it isn’t so much to disrupt the festivities.

But a Happy New Years to all … here’s to a better 2023. One with less mindless killing, for one.
