The Faces Of Rialto Beach

The Faces Of Rialto Beach

The kid in “The Sixth Sense” said, “I see dead people.” As for me, I see faces…and animals, angels, demons and characters from movies and comic books. It’s been that way for as long as I can remember. Whether it’s clouds, grain and knots on a wooden fence or paint splatters on the floor – I’ll find something. My theory as to why that happens is that it’s a combination of a very active imagination and the mind’s desire to…

2017 Photo Review – Part Two

2017 Photo Review – Part Two

Part two of my 2017 photo review will include 12 images that were taken after Pam and I moved to Sequim, Washington. I found that this second part was harder to narrow down than the first half.

I know I’m getting more settled because I’ve started a new collection of gathered natural objects from our outings. I love to forage! Some items I collect for a specific purpose (e.g. acorns for wee tea sets and decorative features). Other treasures I gather simply out of appreciation….

Fort Worden Batteries – Intentional Camera Movement (ICM)

Fort Worden Batteries – Intentional Camera Movement (ICM)

The historic gun batteries of Fort Worden are delightfully cool and creepy.  Located in Port Townsend, Washington, these batteries were originally constructed as part of the “Triangle of Fire,” which included Forts Worden, Flagler and Casey.  The idea was to prevent a hostile fleet from attacking the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard or the cities of Seattle, Tacoma and Everett.  Fort Worden originally had 41 artillery pieces and never fired a hostile shot.  The whole of Fort Worden became a State…
