Black and White Patterns

Icicles on Doug Fir

I took these recently … more of my continuing interest in (mostly) high contrast black and white images. The top one also was put into Photoshop to detect the edges. The bottom two are just straight high contrast … taking the contrast slider in LIghtroom and increasing contrast to its maximum.

In my last post, I mentioned a new typewriter sales and repair shop opening up in my home town. I was able to take some interesting photos there, including this one from the underside of a unit that was being repaired and was out of its case. I liked the quasi-abstract industrial design.

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.

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.
