An excellent example of fine woodworking from the interior of The Hastings building in Port Townsend, WA. You just don’t find work like this anymore.
This little toy was in a hallway in the vacant Hastings Building (1889) in Port Townsend. Not sure what exactly he’s pointing to, but he is certainly dressed for the part.
These are from a recent visit to the interior of a vacant (awaiting restoration) building in downtown Port Townsend, Washington. The Hastings Building was built in 1889. The ground floor is still used for a shop or two. Some rooms are in better shape than others… but all have a lot of interesting details in the metal work and wood work.
Starting the final day’s hike of a 32 mile, 5 day backpack trip into the Olympic National Park up the North Fork of the Dosewallips River. It had been sunny the previous 4 days, but just after we started our hike out the mist and clouds blew up the valley. Fortunately, I had my camera slung across the body and not in my pack. A cross-body sling (I use a BlackRapid), keeps the camera at your side above your hip and not bouncing off your chest at each step.
The contrast between the green of the vanilla leaf and the intense purple of the trillium caught my eye. This must have been one of the latest blooming trillium in the area … it was the only one I saw with the leaves still attached.
