a view from the laundry pile…

…it's all about perspective.

Photo fun in the…fog.

on August 8, 2012

Even though it’s sunny now, this morning started out very drizzly and gray (which is fine by me – I like it). So, I took the opportunity to go shoot some photos. I could’ve included them, here, in their “natural state” but I thought it might be fun to do something ‘different’ and play with my photo program “PhotoScape” (it’s free download, by the way, and I think it does a pretty good job).  And I love the look of the vintage sepia tones.

Of course, I headed down to the water. This is, after all, one of my most favorite places and I try to visit it as often as I can. There were a few people out on the water, mostly those from the summer sailing program learning to maneuver different sized boats and canoes. They looked like they were having a great time (not that I can imagine anyone not having fun on the water), stopping just a minute or two to take a peek at the ferry as it was coming and going.

We see quite a few “bait balls” here (small fish that swim in a tight little ball or sphere to try to avoid predators…though it doesn’t seem to do much but attract them…) and can always find them, right away, by watching the seagulls. Some day I hope to be looking right at one when an Orca decides to go for a snack.

I poked around the marina for a minute or twelve, as well. I never get tired of looking at boats. I don’t know if it’s because I can imagine myself sailing around on every single one of them (there are some beauties out there) or, maybe, it’s that they all have such different shapes and colors. There’s just something about them that I love.

On the way home I took a quick detour up to the bluffs. There’s a great view of the inlet and a few pretty flowers, too. Not a bad way to start the day, at all.
