war doors

For Norm2.0’s Thursday Doors.

I went for a walk at Fort Worden this week and did not walk on the beach. I was wearing work shoes not suitable for sand. I went up the bluff to the bunkers instead. The bunkers are so quiet in the winter, without all the tourists.

It was very dark yesterday by 3:00 pm. We are so close to the solstice now.

Mundane Monday #185: balance

For Mundane Monday #185, my theme is balance.

I took this yesterday, hiking the beach with my daughter.

How would you photograph balance? Or what photograph does it make you think of?

Send your links and I will post them next week.

Last weeks theme was rats.

the ocean is never calm and still, but the depths are very different from the surface

Come in

It’s an ocean
Big enough for us all
Float under the bridge with me
Or wander out to distant ships at sea
Stay on the surface
Or come down in the depths
Leap out and crash back in whale form
Or surf the wake of a boat
Or in the waves to catch a fish
Storms come and rain and rainbows
Sky with clouds lightening sun stars
Climb a rock or lighthouse or cliff
Or stand on a boat
But then return oh love return to the sea

a very old green roof

This is one of the Fort Worden bunkers. Green roofs are coming into fashion, and I do think they are a wonderful thing. But here are green roofs from the 1910s.

I took this during the Centrum Voiceworks week. I love the soft colors, greens and blues with a little grey and tans….
