Recharged by batteries

"Battery Russell", "Fort Stevens State Park", Oregon, abstractTurbulent sunset Many an object is not seen, though it falls within the range of our visual ray, because it does not come within the range of our intellectual ray, i. e., we are not looking for it. So, in the largest sense, we find only the world we look for. (Journal of Henry David Thoreau, July 2, 1857)

Last month’s sojourn in the Northwest gave me a chance to visit familiar territory: the historic gun batteries at the old forts in Puget Washington, "fort Casey", abstractFace in the crowd Sound and beyond.  It was a great way to dive back in to photography. No matter how many times I visit these locations I always see something new. Old paint peels, new colors appear, weathering continues to beautifully age the concrete walls.  I came away tired but inspired.

This is going to be a rather large collection of photographs, and I’ve only been able to get about halfway through it so far.  Two examples are shown here, and I hope you’ll click on this link to see the rest. More to come!

Fay-I am loving all the unique abstract shapes and compositions, and the wonderfully unexpected colors in this collection. There are terrific!
