Mill, Mountains and Marina

The Port Townsend Paper mill is the largest local employer. Unless, perhaps, you call the ocean the employer of the fishing fleet. Another strong candidate would be the Olympic National Park and the recreational opportunities it provides. This image almost looks like it is a toned black and white image … but it is pretty much a straight (non-enhanced) color image.

Marina Sunset

When we had a clearing late in the day, I headed down to the beach in downtown Port Townsend to catch the sunset. I thought the strong backlighting of the fishing fleet was an interesting contrast to the homes on the hillside and a faint hint of the mountains in the distance.

Abandoned Military Work

Battlement at Fort Worden

These trees show the effects of being exposed to a lot of high winds on Point Wilson at Fort Worden State Park in Port Townsend. The sun was going down and warmed up the colors just wonderfully. The image made me think of something you might see in SE Asia.

Mountians and Ships

Cascade Mountains and the ferry Kennewick

Both images are taken from Fort Worden St Park in Port Townsend. The first image is of the WA State Ferry Kennewick on it’s way to Port Townsend from Coupeville. It’s a great boat ride…. especially when the weather is clear and you can see the Cascades in one direction and the Olympics in the other.

USS Robert Johnson and Mt Baker

This is the USS Robert Johnson with Mt Baker in the background. The discontinuity between the natural and the industrial/military attracted me to taking this image. I don’t usually take photos of military vessals … don’t want to be accused of being a spy!

Just a note: The ship was named after a young black marine who was serving in Viet Nam when a grenade landed in his unit’s foxhole. He through himself on the grenade, saving the lives of the others in his unit.

Ring and Moss

Ring and Moss

The abandoned gun emplacements at Fort Worden State Park in Port Townsend, WA are a great location for finding interesting artifacts. I really liked the moss that was growing around this one retaining ring (not the correct military term, I’m sure). It was interesting partly because of a whole wall full of these rings, this was the only one with a patch of moss around it. Must be some difference in the makeup of the cement in that location.

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.

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.
