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.
I’m not usually interested in shooting “Street Photography” … but in this case, I was trying out a new camera. I liked the feeling of this woman sitting alone having a quiet glass of wine … I thought it was reflective of the last year and a half of isolation during the pandemic.
Another shot from the interior of the Hastings Building, Port Townsend, WA. I was attracted to the random pattern of the paint on the wallpaper.
Well, there isn’t any lipstick left on these, but I still would be nervous using them. Not sure why they all ended up lined up on this interior window sill.
Found inside the Hastings Building, Port Townsend, WA.
This window sill was just awful, but I liked the detail work on the window pull. The design was matched by all the hinges in the building.
The vacant Hastings Building has an empty feeling. One can image that at night the halls are visited by ghosts of the past. But in the mid-day sun, they just look empty.
