This is a small public beach that sits right in the middle of downtown Port Townsend. There is a small square with tables for people to sit and eat pizza or drink coffee (the two closest options and both of which are excellent). If you click on the photo for the larger version, you will see a board in the lower right corner with the words: “Tell the Truth”. A good recommendation.
I just liked the horizontal lines of the shoreline and waves with the vertical lines of the trees.
This isn’t my typical composition. But I was attracted to the stark lines and muted colors.
Shot with a Nikon F6 on Portra 400.
This is the view after departing Bainbridge Island on the way across Puget Sound to Seattle. In the distance are the Olympic Mountains. I was on my way to the region’s biggest camera store. It’s always a good day when you get to go to a camera store, but not always this nice of weather.
I like riding ferries… and that’s a good thing, since there are so many involved in getting to and from Port Townsend (where I live). I struggled with the decision about going Black and White with these … they were, of course, heavily into shades of blue. Decided to go B&W partly from having just browsed through a few Lee Friedlander books.
