Black and White Brownie Shots

Tree Shadows on Building

These are images taken on 620 Tri-X at Fort Worden State Park in Port Townsend on the Kodak Brownie Flash Six-20. (and I remembered to wind the film between shots this time)

The images are “soft” … but that is typical of cameras of this design … using a single lens element.

This was the first roll of film that I shot with this camera and I was taking images as I walked around Fort Worden State Park … trying to get the 8 shots taken so I could send the roll in to be developed. I no longer process my own images … finding it much more convenient to use commercial labs who process and provide you with scans. I use “The Darkroom” in California … and find they are wonderful to work with.

Bench, Tree, Building

Bench, Tree, Building

One of the abandoned buildings in Fort Worden State Park, Port Townsend. This building in on top the hill away from the majority of buildings … including the ones that are now referred to as the Creative Commons. These include the classrooms for Northwind School of the Arts, where I occasionally teach classes in Adobe Lightroom.

First Sign of Fall

First Sign of Fall

I really was struck by the pattern of the shadows and the interplay of light between the shadows and the leaves. Tomorrow is the Equinox, so I guess technically these are not “autumn” leaves …

(I took this a couple weeks back and it was the first time I noticed leaves that had fallen, but there are lots more now.)

Sand and Seaweed

Sand and Seaweed

Walking along the beach at Fort Worden State Park in Port Townsend, WA, I noticed these two pieces of seaweed sticking out of the sand. The curved shapes and shadows attracted my eye.

Backlit Marina

Backlit Marina 1

After I took the previous post’s shots of the rainbows, I turned and walked over to the marina. I was looking directly into the sun and took these images of the boats in the marina. I used slightly different post-processing settings and the top image is more contrasty. I like it better than the one below… but when I increased the contrast on that one, it just didn’t work as well.
