Sign and Leaves

How Do You Photograph Wind?

To call today blustery is a classic understatement. At the first traffic light this morning, I wondered if the wind was going to blow me over. As I walked around campus, buffeted, I thought, “How do I photograph the wind?” Then I came upon this sign, blown over. Now it was wait and try to catch the paper as the wind flipped it up. Only one of the dozen shots caught it.

Waiting For Ferry To Dock

Waiting For Ferry To Dock

Life in the Pacific Northwest revolves around ferries for many people. As the ferry docks at Vashon Island, pedestrians begin to queue up for departure: walk on traffic is first on and first off. I’m on my motorcycle, directly behind this couple. Motorcycles are the first vehicles on and off, and usually I would have been parked where they are standing. However, the parking attendant stopped me where I would remain out of the rain. And that SUV? It almost took me out. When I was alongside the front passenger door, the driver pulled out and into my lane on the ramp! And no, the ferry attendant had not given him a “go” nod. And yes, I was parked when he pulled in and parked.

365 Project : Day 65

Carousel Horse

Fall brings memories of the county fair and merry-go-rounds. The Auburn SuperMall has a merry-go-round adjacent to the food court and across from Pacific Northwest Motorcycle Safety. I was participating in a new, on-street course today and discovered the carousel horses. The iPhone doesn’t differentiate between the jewel tones of the horses and the gilded background as well as my eye; that’s why I used ColorSplash.
