Black and White Tuesday: 1-7-14

B&W Tuesday 1-7-14

Winter trips on the Washington State Ferries offer some amazing photo opportunities if you have a warm coat and don’t mind some extremely cold wind.   John, Ryan and I took a beautiful trip on the Edmonds – Kingston ferry a few days ago and I left the comfy, warm bench to explore the top deck and take photos for as long as I could before my fingers froze and my hair tangled into permanent knots.

The bright blue sky against this green roof and white trim on the boat is what I set out to capture in this photo but when I revisited it in black and white and decided I liked it this way even better.  Of course I have plenty of color shots too and if you’d like to see Mt. Rainier at sunset a new photo is up on my Facebook page.

  1. Architectural images are some of my favorites. When I first looked at this, I thought it was a building. Of course, now that I look at it closer and you have told me it is a ferry, it seems so obvious 🙂 Great shot!


  2. I recently took a ferry trip from Zealand to Jutland,Denmark and it was something to remember as well, from the “amazing photo opportunities”…and the need for “a warm coat for the extremely cold wind.” Just to paraphrase you. 😉 So I can relate to your experience perhaps.


  3. Without the color you have asked us to consider the shapes more closely – nicely done. Did you go to Kingston for ice cream? 🙂
