Theme Day: Black and white in color

Today’s theme features photographs where color is so muted that the shot appears to be black and white. In the middle of winter here in the Pacific Northwest this isn’t much of a stretch. My shot is from the Dungeness bluffs looking south across the Strait of Juan de Fuca toward the Olympic Mountains.

Theme Day: Photo of the year

I had over a dozen candidates for today’s City Daily Photo theme day, “Photo of the year.” This, however, was the only one that I’d enlarged and hung on a wall. I took that as a sign. It was taken on a walk in the Olympic National Park Hoh Rainforest, a place of incomparable beauty.

Theme Day: Transition


I went for the obvious for today’s City Daily Photo theme, “Transition.”

This is one of the bigger transitions in my life, the day a gigantic moving truck picked up everything we owned in California and drove off. After several stops it arrived at our destination, Sequim, Washington. This marked the end of my life spent entirely in California, the end of my working career, and, for a while, the end of much that was familiar. Knowing all this, I was filled with excitement. The lack of anxiety assured me that all would be well, as it has been.

Theme day: Library

Library lights

Welcome to the Sequim Library. I thought I’d start out with a view inside. Yes, there are plenty of books. But I really like the ceiling and light fixtures.

Our library is a welcoming place.

Library front

It’s also a busy community resource. I counted no fewer that eight people — including a family group of three generations — as I quickly shot these pictures.
