Key City asked Phil Baumgartner and me to shoot some more publicity photos for the upcoming production of the Little Match Girl. I’m enjoying the challenge and learning more about lighting. There’s a lot to getting lights to work and a lot of trial and error. Sometimes it works.
It’s dark and wet, our typical winter weather. What’s new?
This is the photo that’s incorporated into Key City Public Theater’s poster for the Little Match Girl. The story is based on a Hans Christian Anderson story, though the ending is more positive. The show is one of three that Key City is putting on as part of their Holiday Sampler series of performances.
We have a number of places around town where Mallards live year round. It’s easy to take too many similar photos of the birds because they are so colorful and easily become used to people. Here I think the ducks make a nice focal point for this pond photo.
Lots of weather the last few days. Rain, wind, and sun have combined to create some dramatic scenes. I’ve seen rainbows every day this week. This one shows that the heavens shine on Port Townsend High.
This canoe has lived in the grasses next to Port Townsend’s Boat Haven for at least 5 months. I’ve never seen it moved and have no idea if it’s abandoned or not. I like the line it makes parallel to the logs and shore.
River Park in Sequim hosts some lovely cottonwood trees along the Dungeness River.
Here’s another shot from Beaver Valley. Yellow leaves from the poplars in back, the alder on the left and the blackberries in front frame the view.
Continuing with the South County theme, here’s a clever “billboard” sign advertising Fransom Trucking. This is on Beaver Valley road not Center Valley.
I love the patterns of light and shade that the puffy clouds scatter across the landscape on a partly overcast and windy day.
