Around the island . . .





We have our first house guest! What better excuse to get up, get out, and take a look around? He's a photographer, too, so it's great to be able to shoot the photographic breeze, learn a few things, and share some cool visual experiences.

Now that I've found my battery chargers, I can use the digital SLRs, but these were taken with my iPhone, using the Camera+ app and the Lone Star effect.

In between showers we visited Fort Casey, drove around the Coupeville-Port Townsend ferry docks, then to a marina (where it seriously rained until we scurried back to the car, when it promptly stopped), Langley, and then back to Coupeville. We head out again this morning after breakfast. Hoo ha!

And what did I learn last night at dinner? That CMD>L in Bridge will enlarge the picture big enough for me to determine if it's worth keeping or if I should trash it right then. This is probably the first thing one learns in Bridge, but nope, I never knew . . . much to our guest's amusement. Smart-ass.

All good, but I especially like the lighthouse image. All the horizontal lines draw the eye through the image to a vanishing point way off onto the horizon. I love that when it happens. What light is that? And who's the tiny person way in the background standing on the little hill. A definite point of mysterious interest that excites my imagination.

Glad you liked the lighthouse shot, Sam. Kind words coming from you. Thanks.
