This is downtown Port Townsend’s main intersection. The traffic light is set to blink red in all directions … but because the lights are mounted on the street corners instead of hanging in the middle of the road, there are a lot of drivers (especially visitors) that miss the lights and run the intersection. Fortunately, the speed limit is 20 mph and traffic is slow.
Walking in the late afternoon (or early morning) gives you wonderful shadows in the middle of the woods. There isn’t anything (much) I like better. I have found that I’m more cautious about walking through the shadows these days, however. The shadows can hide tripping hazards.
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 …
The sign called this a lily pond. But it seemed strange that there were no water lilies.
If you notice carefully, these images were taken from the same spot. (I was sitting at a picnic table waiting for a friend) I like both of these … both the one with the young woman who brings something to the image … and the lower image for the lack of people emphasized by the empty picnic table.
You may notice that the closest tree shows up in both.
