Bunker door at Fort Worden


Bunker door, originally uploaded by jomoma58.

Rust and hand prints...it can't get much better than this. I'm CRAZY about this stuff! I wandered around the old bunkers at Fort Worden last weekend, in Port Townsend, Washington. It had been cloudy most of the day, but the sun popped out just in time to reveal the glorious colors of rust and old paint. ArtFest 2009 will be taking place there in about 3 weeks, I can't wait!

  2. oh slobber and drool!!!!! I agree, I love this stuff, also! I also love to see what fascinations others have with their photo subjects -- mine are predominantly sconces and light fixtures, it seems, and peeling paint. Gates. Wrought iron. And old beat-up broke-down busted-out trucks. yea.

  3. Toni, I think we are experiencing a form of "wabi-sabi", which is basically the appreciation of beauty in the imperfections of aged and weathered items in their natural state. 'Wabi' means "peace, harmony, tranquility, balance", and 'sabi' means "bloom of time"...
