Cattail effects

There’s a bumper crop of cattails at the Dungeness Recreation Area. I’ve taken more pictures of them than anyone needs. This shot should be titled “Well, maybe if I alter it in Photoshop it won’t look like I’m so obsessed with cattails.” Or something like that.

Those of a certain age may remember this phrase. When broadcast television had a case of technical indigestion the words “Please Stand By” would appear on the screen, often with a field of black and white fuzz as background.

No technical difficulties here. I goofed around with Photoshop and decided to share the results. There’ll be one more tomorrow and then we’ll return to regular broadcasting.

Collage Tour 2015 1

The annual “Tour de Dung” bicycle races were yesterday. It’s “Dung” as in “Dungeness,” the region in Sequim where the racers ride each year. If the weather could have been better I can’t imagine how; it was a cool, beautiful day.

Collage Tour 2015 2

I took fewer photos than in past years. Other projects called. I had fun with some shots; I’ll show those to you tomorrow.

Additional races are scheduled for next Saturday. I may check it out then, too. It’s one of my favorite local events and I love settling down for a front row seat.

Locals: Keep a lookout for riders next Saturday and drive with care.
