Abstract Interiors

Wall Patterns

These were taken in the historic Hastings building in downtown Port Townsend. The building is not open to the public (except for shops on the ground floor) and its future is uncertain at this time. Hopefully, it will be renovated and the wonderful woodwork restored. In the meantime, some of the mess is visually interesting.

Splattered Paint

Abandoned Window

Abandoned Window

This window is from one of the battlements at Fort Worden State Park and one that is readily accessible to visitors. As such, it has been ‘tagged’ numerous times over the years. The park approach is to paint over the tags. Between the pealing paint, normal discolor with aging and the tag removal touch up paint, the color patterns can be very visually interesting.

Fortuitous Accident

Fortuitous Accident

I really like it when you screw up and it turns out to be fortuitous.

I was in a little hurry and got the photo paper in the printer upside down. When it came out of the printer, I knew immediately what I had done, but my response was very positive towards the resulting image. The problem with this as a regular process to create images is that the ink doesn’t dry for weeks and weeks. I finally had it dry enough so it wouldn’t smudge too much … but still had to put it inside a plastic sleeve in order to keep the ink from covering the scanner glass.

The original image was posted on a page here.

Camera: well, that’s a good question… um, a flat bed scanner
