Almost Film Like Quality

I took this image with my Pentax K-x, which has 12mp as opposed to the Nikon D610 DSLR I usually use. This image almost looks like a film image, maybe due to less pixels as compared to newer DSLR models.

Low tide and a Plane

Low tide on the Duwamish River a couple of weeks ago. This spot is directly under the landing path for Sea Tac Airport. With the exception of the air traffic, this is a fairly serene location I have been coming to for years.

Some of the marine traffic spotted a few weeks ago on the Duwamish River, Seattle WA.

South Park Changes

The Port of Seattle owns a stretch of land that was once private residences. It’s referred to Pier 117, but there is no pier and the small green space they created was mainly for a large rain garden to keep street runoff out of the Duwamish River.  The black and white image, in the foreground, was where two, ramshackle, abandoned houses were located. I have a photo of them somewhere in my archives.  They ( the Port) left the two cement pads that the houses were sitting on, for some reason. There is a walking path the length of this ‘park’.

Across the river is I think an abandoned factory, perhaps the old Kenworth plant. Not totally sure. Again, this is the oldest EPA Superfund site in the US.

Across the street from the park is Coffee Umbria, a coffee roaster, etc. Apparently razor wire is needed to protect the business. This particular section of South Park is pretty sketchy, so I understand. I am always on guard and don’t stay in the area very long when I shoot there.

Large Barge

Recently spent a little time around the Duwamish River in South Park, Seattle.  This day the river was really high due to runoff in the mountains. The barge looked like an ocean going type, although I’m no barge expert.  There are a couple of more steps, in the image, that are usually visible even during high tide.

Note: I used an old, Vivitar wide angle lens on the barge photo.

Ireland 2014

A sampler of Irish landscapes taken in 2014. The Cliffs of Moher* are behind me and the other three images are from two different spots in the Irish countryside.

*I still haven’t mastered the ‘selfie’.

Duwamish Access VII

After getting past a No Trespassing sign and fence I was able to get a closer look at this closed pedestrian pier and dock. In the background of one of the images you can see the West Seattle high-rise bridge. This bridge was a replacement for a drawbridge that was hit by a ship back in the 1980’s, I believe.

Duwamish Access VI

Rippling water wake of large barge. What appeared to me as abandoned piers. One of them was a pedestrian pier that is now barricaded. To access the abandoned piers I had to ‘overlook’ a No Trespassing sign :-). Trespassing is pretty common to get into abandoned places or ones of high risk. My next post will take a closer look at the abandoned pier in the “No Trespassing” Zone.

Duwamish Access V

Large cement/gravel plant along the west side of  Duwamish River. On the east side a city of empty containers.

Duwamish Access IV

Some of the non-commercial traffic on the Duwamish River. It’s interesting that one natural resource can be shared by so many diverse interests; from various wildlife, boaters, fishers, fish and commerce.

Under the Rail Bridge

At this spot on the Yakima River there is a rail bridge over a small stream that feeds into the river. A fun spot to explore, but not when a train is passing through.
