Abstracts and other pleasures

"Fort Stevens State Park", abstractThe forest for the trees

I spent some time in the Pacific Northwest last month, concentrating on making abstract images.  This may be the first time that I’ve gone there and not done any nature photography.  Most of the photographs from the trip came from prowling through the abandoned gun batteries in state parks around Puget Sound – plus a few special moments from a stopover in my old home town.  It was an exhilarating and productive experience, and then I came down with a cold at the end of the trip - one of those nasty, lingering viruses - and spent the last week feeling anything but productive. I’m just now starting to feel human again, and am making slow progress with post processing – the images shown here, and  several others, are in the new Spring 2016 collection.  Thanks to my good friend Robitussin, I hope to have the rest done soon!
