Meet my leetle fren’ ...




I was having breakfast when I felt I was being watched.

I was.

There on the outside of the glass door was a large banana slug, making his way up the smooth surface. Since we rarely see these guys from underneath, I got the iPhone and began shooting.

I learned a few things about slug anatomy, which you probably don’t want to hear about, but which I found fascinating. Of course.

So here’s my new buddy, looking pretty good in the early hours, silhouetted against the trees out there. I offered him a cup of coffee. Nope, he said, makes him too hyper.

Mooring lines . . .



To a photographer who enjoys photographing industrial-ish subject matter, Anacortes, Washington is always a fun destination.

We walked out on a dock to take a look at this tugboat, ended up talking for some time with the captain, and took a few photos. I particularly liked this first picture, where the heavy-duty mooring lines lead your eye into the picture, creating depth.

Across the passage in Port Townsend, a sign warns us to stay clear of those heavy-duty mooring lines.

And finally, here's a close-up of those lines we've been reminded to stay clear of. Terrific texture in the photo, and the weathered blue-grey metal of the ship is scrumptious.

Have a great day. And watch out for mooring lines!
