Crabbing from the Dock

Crabbing from the Dock

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 …

With and Without

With
Without

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.

Kiddies Pool

Kiddies Pool

A pleasant July Saturday afternoon found me spending some time at Volunteer Park in Seattle. It had been years since I had visited … in the ’70’s I had lived nearby and was there frequently. It was nice to see the Kiddies Pool was still used and not completely overrun by hordes of folks. (maybe it would have been more crowded if it had been 10 degrees warmer)

Ferry Ride

The Salish Ferry at Coupeville Dock

My previous post showed the fog bank and shoreline, shot on the ferry from Port Townsend to Coupeville. Once at the Coupeville dock, I left the ferry and bought a return ticket, then walked back on the ferry. The trip time is about 35 minutes each way, so a pleasant excursion at reasonable cost … $1.80 round trip.

During the Loading of Vehicles … (fewer people on deck)
