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.
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.
The Haller Fountain in Port Townsend was donated to the town of Port Townsend by Theodore N. Haller. It had first been displayed at the Chicago Exhibition of 1893. Locally known as the Galatea Fountain (after the sea nymph represented).
As a side note: Haller Lake is a small lake (15 acres, 36 feet maximum depth) in the north end of Seattle, not too far from where I grew up. For a number of years, I attended Haller Lake Methodist Church and had the opportunity to occasionally swim in the lake. It was named after Theodore developed lake front plots in 1905. It wasn’t until I was researching this image that I discovered the connection.
I am amazed at where plant life can exist, struggling through severely demanding conditions. I like this image for that and for the muted colors and patterns.
The “typical” autumn photograph shows brightly colored foliage. There are other fall colors though: I love the colors of fall vegetables.
Red Dog Farm is a local (in Chimacum, a small town outside of Port Townsend, WA … which is also a small town) organic farm that includes a CSA program (Community Sustained Agriculture). This photo is from the weekly Farmer’s Market in Port Townsend.
