The night was rocking. We lost power and listened to a tree limb barrage for hours. I am more than grateful that we are all well and the house intact. The birds and squirrels were a bit angry this morning – urban renewal they didn’t request. 🙂
I shot this at the Wing Luke Museum – Belonging: Before and After the Immigration Act of 1965 . This case was part of a group of objects from the Japanese American internment camps from the second world war. I found the only way I could photograph this was from behind…leaving the bear to tell the story.
Forgotten sand toys
Industry of beauty
In January our lovely and talented Greg Stene posted Inspiration Point – a beautiful capture of a fleeting moment during sunrise. A few days ago I was lucky enough to capture a similar moment.
You can’t have the flowers without the soil and the water…
This is another shot from a recent trip around Whidbey Island, WA. This is a sign from a small restaurant in Coupeville. If you look back through my images of the Pacific NW you will notice how subtle the color is out here – so this sign was arresting as we walked along the street. I did not saturate it or do anything but a small crop. For fun I put a B/W version behind the cut – it’s kind of sad by comparison.
The warm evening drew me out with camera. I played around until I found that 8 seconds shutter allowed the sandy beach to register, the water to smooth out, a touch of blue hour remained and while bright – hopefully the loading pier is still acceptable. The pilings in the foreground are the historical remnants of the shingle mills that lined our waterfront.
I spotted this lone wilted tulip amid a pile of construction materials… and this is on a farm that hosts one of the massive tulip displays in the Skagit Valley in Washington State. The fields were stunning – but this really grabbed my attention.
These lovely young ladies were at the beach last night – perhaps after their ballet lesson. One ran over to the ferry pier and with delight resumed her lessons – and since ballerinas work in corps – the others fell in line.
Been living in the fog – adding this to Sam’s images of fog in the Puget Sound area.
Soft and peaceful start to Saturday morning…
Caught the morning light just so on this tree – would have made a terrific solstice image…
