I was going through old photos and found this one from back in ’72 or so. My friend was just playing his guitar in the park and enjoying the sun. The mounted patrol came by to make sure we weren’t smoking any illegal herbs. Why would he think that? He didn’t bother us, though.
The black area of the tree seems to be hovering over this woman sitting on the waterfront/beach bench in downtown Port Townsend. It imparts an ominous feel to the image. (shot on Tri-X film)

Dungeness Spit State Park is located just north of Sequim on the north coast of the Olympic Peninsula. The lighthouse at the end of the spit is an 8 mile walk (one way) … and the signage warns to make sure you are aware of the time and tides.

If the weather is clear, the views can be spectacular … including looking towards Hurricane Ridge in Olympic National Park.
