Dock and Crane, Indian Island

Dock and Crane, Indian Island

This is looking across the bay at Port Townsend to the pier where they load/unload naval ships. There was quite a bit of rain shower activity and low clouds. It created an interesting visual. I changed this to black and white, but couldn’t tell much of a difference.

Sun Breaking Through Mist

Sun Breaking Through Mists on the Dungeness

When you have spent the evening listening to the sound of rain on the tent roof and you wake to heavy mists, you wonder if you will be hiking out in the rain. When you spot a sign that the mists are parting and there is sun on the ridge above, it it s wonderful feeling … bringing a sigh of relief.

Urban Deer

There are a lot of deer in Port Townsend, WA. They are considered pests by gardeners trying to grow roses (for instance). As a result of their frequent interaction with humans (mostly non-violent, except for the irate gardeners), they are very tame and unafraid. As a result, you get fawns walking right by (when they are trying to keep up with Mom).

Visionn Violets


Here’s another floral, this time using my iPad and the app Visionn. I sorta hate to admit it, but it sure is fun. There’s an element of surprise after you take the image, since the final varies from what the preview looked like. In that way, it is like waiting for your prints to come back from the developer.



We were concerned about having peony in the yard. They are notorious for attracting ants and we had an invasion of the little critters recently. But they are sure a showy bloom. I haven’t seen this variety before … and they seem to be very short lived, compared to my experience with the more typical variety.
