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.
… and substitute it with my own.
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.
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.
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…
