Fort Worden Officer Residences

Fort Worden State Park is in Port Townsend, WA. It’s a wonderful use of a retired military facility. Lots of great hiking trails and nice beaches with views of the Cascade Mountains and Admiralty Inlet. It was one of the sites used for the movie “An Officer and a Gentleman”.

I was struck by how the repeating pattern from the stairs is echoed by the pattern of the roofs.

Door to the Holiday

DSC_0940

Above the door you can see “Clam Cannery 1885”. This is a building on the waterfront in Port Townsend. I really liked the door with the wreath, and the way the color of the ribbon on the wreath was echoed by the color of the geraniums.

Door Detail

 

Walking around downtown Port Townsend, I was mostly taking photos of the great old building… wide angle shots, mostly. But the details are great too. I loved the patina that this door had developed over the years. I’m really glad that they haven’t kept it clean.

This is the Clam Cannery building (1885) in Port Townsend. I was really enjoying a mid-winter sunny day and as the sun was starting to set the light really brought out the textures in the face of the building.

They just don’t do buildings like they used to… I really like the ornate trim on the old buildings in Port Townsend… this one dating to 1889 … about the real heyday of construction of a lot of the downtown area.
