Norm’s photographs today are of 11th century doors, well, I am so jealous. My local door pictures are feeling unsatisfying. I like this door to the ferry though, more of a virtual door, with the ramp up and waiting. I went out this morning and with the cloud cover everything was shades of blues and silvers and greys, except for the wind sock.
I like all the cormorants on the pilings too, waiting to warm up.
We are having a week of gorgeous sunny weather, where the waiting plants explode into bud and bloom. The sun and shadows are amazing after lowered clouds and soft coolness right above us. Bright contrast with the color and shadows on this gate and everything else!
I took this last weekend. This time I am shaking influenza quickly, hooray.
Look! I finally took some photographs of local doors! Hoorah! This is our new school, Salish Coast Elementary. My son was visiting this last week and we walked around the school on Monday. The sun was bright and there is a lot of glass, so I could play with the reflections in my photographs. The school opened in the fall and I missed the grand opening. Yesterday’s Dr. Suess picture is from the school as well. My son tried out the new playground equipment too. His hat and something about his position makes me think of both the Cat in the Hat and Waldo.
I took this last weekend at the Rotary President Elect Training. Hotel doors are more functional than glamorous. I curled up in a chair in this hall when I needed a little quiet time between meetings. I like the carving over the hall and the abundance of windows.
I am lame! I meant to start photographing doors in town but I was distracted by snow and hummingbirds and eagles. And then I tweaked my back so I really am lame…. but this is a virtual door, to think of spring, in spite of the snow.
Here are orchids and snow and then a hummingbird to make up for it.
This is the arched entry from my house. I was trying to capture the blues in the snow on Monday as the evening light dimmed. It’s time I photographed a lot more of my local doors, since Port Townsend has many building built from 1860-1880. Not my house, it’s from 1929. More doors to follow soon.
Refugees welcome - Flüchtlinge willkommen I am teaching German to refugees. Ich unterrichte geflüchtete Menschen in der deutschen Sprache. I am writing this blog in English and German because my friends speak English and German. Ich schreibe auf Deutsch und Englisch, weil meine Freunde Deutsch und Englisch sprechen.
