Crabbing from the Dock

Crabbing from the Dock

I was walking around downtown Port Townsend (WA) when I saw these two trying to catch crabs from the dock. There was a lot of waiting involved … maybe after I left they were successful. As it was, I watched the crab moving around the netting, but not seem very interested.

This was taken with my Leica Q2 Monochrom … which takes photos only in black and white. This means that there is no Red-Green-Blue filter set in front of the sensor. I really like the images you get …

Kiddies Pool

Kiddies Pool

A pleasant July Saturday afternoon found me spending some time at Volunteer Park in Seattle. It had been years since I had visited … in the ’70’s I had lived nearby and was there frequently. It was nice to see the Kiddies Pool was still used and not completely overrun by hordes of folks. (maybe it would have been more crowded if it had been 10 degrees warmer)

Ferry Views

Mt Rainier from the Bainbridge Ferry
The Olympics and Port Townsend from the Coupeville Ferry

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.

Wind on the Water

Wind on the Water

When I arrived at the location I used for my photo of the moonrise (see previous post), it was very windy. The bluff I was on provided some shelter from the wind down on the beach and shoreside waters, but you could see the wind moving across the water and reacting to down-gusts, etc. My Nikon was on my tripod with a 500mm lens on it, ready to shoot the moon. I didn’t want to take that apart, so I used my iPhone to take a shot of the water, using a fence railing as support. I was pretty happy with the result. It was a 1/4 second exposure, so you can see movement in the foreground trees, the driftwood is sharp, and the water is slightly blurred.
