I love the poplars that line the lagoon in Kah Tai Nature Park. Some years they turn a beautiful golden yellow in the fall. Though they’re starting to turn, the leaves are falling off the trees pretty quickly. It will be a race to see whether we get good color there before too many leaves are gone.
When I started this blog, I made an explicit promise to myself that it would not end up being about photography. The pictures here are intended only to pay tribute to Port Townsend and surrounding areas. In short, it’s a blog about place not photography.
It’s interesting how restricting focus can reveal shapes and patterns that we would not normally notice. This is a section of the surface of the Hood Canal Bridge. Construction forced a stop on the bridge.
Scott Kelby’s Worldwide Photowalk happened on Sunday October 1st this year in Port Townsend. I decided to photograph other photographers for the day and ignore the Kinetic Skulpture Race, which I’ve shot several times before.
Here’s a Flickr slideshow of more photos from that day.
One of Port Townsend’s treasures is William James Bookseller. This used bookstore on Water Street has a remarkable number of books. It also features remainders and does a mail order business in first editions. The name of the store does not refer to the famous psychologist, William James but the first and middle names of the owner.
Flower season is winding down around Port Townsend. A few holdout flowers remain and should do so until our first frost, which is typically around the end of October. However, three of our sunflower plants still have blooms. Here’s a closeup of one.
