Snowy Bunker

Walking around Fort Worden in Port Townsend in the snow was a treat. Snow is pretty much a rarity in Port Townsend … This is one of the abandoned bunkers that was used to guard the entrance to Admiralty Inlet (Puget Sound).

Off Tyler Street

I returned to reshoot this building with a wide angle perspective control lens. That helped eliminate any keystone distortion. Now all I need is an answer to the question: where does that upper door go to?

Narrow Alley Walkway

Walking around downtown Port Townsend, I passed this small walkway dozens of times before noticing it. It’s pretty amazing, really. Not many windows on those walls…

Big Leaf Maple and Elwha Ranger Station

DSC_1189

The sun shining on the mossy trunk of the maple really caught my attention… having the ranger station in the background was a plus. The hill behind has the bluish cast due to the mists forming in the valley (my hypothesis). Across from the ranger station is the old gas station used for fueling park vehicles.

Back Door

Getting off the main street and walking the alleys and access streets is a great way to find new and visually exciting spots. This door looks like it has seen better days… and the building is just a little bit scary with the cracks and patches.

Tall and Thin Door

DSC_0992

No, this isn’t altered to make it look tall and skinny… the doorway really is like this. Showing a little age… busted up in places, but with a charm of its own.

632 Water Street

Nice pattern in the glass on this door along Water Street in Port Townsend, WA. I like the way the vertical pattern in the top section is repeated horizontally in the lower section.

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.

Powerhouse Door Detail

This is one of the door to the old powerhouse at Fort Worden State Park in Port Townsend, WA. I’m not sure how well it operates now (the door, not the powerhouse). I would love to hear it being opened… I bet it really screeches.

Lens: Nikon 24-300mm set at 85mm
