Anacortes yesterday . . .


Anacortes (just north of Whidbey Island, over Deception Pass, then make a left) is becoming a go-to place for my kind of photography. There are boats, nets, fishermen, reflections, an historic district, and a place where they work on really big boats. Nothing like the number of cool old fishing boats, huge piles of nets, and the accessibility I had in Oregon (at least I've not discovered it yet), but it's still a fun place to poke around in.

Here are my two favorite shots from yesterday, especially the first one, which is the side of a big tanker. I had to shoot from a distance through a chain-link fence, so this was pretty much my only compositional option. But I love it! So clean and simple yet weird and strange. Because at first you don't know what it is, do you? Love when that happens.

And then, while walking among the older boats (versus all the spotless recreational boats that fill the marinas), I noticed these cool reflections in the water. Yum.

It was a good day yesterday. Felt terrific to be out and about in the sunshine and under blue skies.

Wishing us ALL a few days of blue skies and sunshine!

Speaking of poking around, I enjoyed Friday's Harbor. Have you been there yet. Probably when you go island hopping.

Waiting for warmer weather, but it's definitely on our list. Easy to drive to Anacortes, walk aboard the ferry, walk around Friday Harbor, then back home. It will be a good day!
