Gas Works Park


I shot this years ago, on my Minolta X-700 35mmSLR, at Gas Works Park in Seattle. I was taking a photography workshop and they did field trips on the weekends. We met up at different locations and just wandered around, shooting whatever we wanted. If you ever run across a group of lost-looking photographers wandering about a public space, it is probably a class or workshop on a field trip or exercise.

PS: Eight months on and I’m still wearing a boot due to the fractured  4th metatarsal bone. I haven’t been out much with my camera. Poor weather ( typical for Seattle) is also a factor. So, I’ve dug into the archives and re-edited some old film images to post. Just for those doubters, here is the latest X-ray of right foot taken two weeks ago. Little or no healing, so I am now using a device called a Bone Stimulator that attaches to the foot, directly over the fracture. The theory is: wave pulses are sent to the affected area, which is supposed to increase blood flow which = bone growth. Hoping it works!fullsizeoutput_3a07

Reference Nov. 4th Posting

Here is a similar image, totally unedited/cropped, to the posted “mystery image” of Nov. 4th. The colors on the bubble are a little more vibrant in this image, but also the background is more diverse and I was looking for a nearly monochromatic background. Anyway, mystery solved and I thank all of you for playing along with me for a couple of days

8th Ave. Park: South Park, Seattle

A postal-stamp sized park in South Park that few know about as it is mostly a light industrial area. Kayakers use it to launch themselves into the Duwamish River and then either travel the river itself or head out into Elliott Bay. This is the spot where I stalked a blue heron. I posted some of those photos last week.
