Thank you very much.

I was lucky to capture this serene moment. In a way, this picture marks the end of their special relationship. A short time after this picture was taken, my daughter developed a serious allergic reaction towards cats. Although the cat stayed, it could no longer enter the house. It was a difficult period for both of them - I actually think it was worse for the cat, but she adapted in the end. Glad you liked the shot.

Thank you again

Byron.

Bicycles are impressive, Deepak (love the crispness and sharpness).. but as Siggi said there is great (and mysterious)  feel to the second image.. good work, thank you for sharing.

Best regards,

With that background, now it makes me sad to look at it. But you must have seen it that way right from the start -- not when you took it, but when you posted it. It's interesting how we see things depends so much on the context we bring to them.

Your conversion style always brings out the best in your subject matter, these shots leaves one with a feeling of sadness at the lack of respect the graffiti artists show for such a historical site.

Yes, while I appreciate the image for its photographic virtues, at the same time it pains me to look at it.

Regards

Byron.

They paint out the graffiti every now and then, and soon it returns. A few years ago there was a much more creative brand of graffiti in the rooms.

There's a fine B/W photo periodical called Lens Work, produced and edited by Brooks Jensen. (The work displayed is so fine that I had to cancel my subscription or stop doing B/W myself. I chose to cancel.) Anyway, I once went to visit Jensen, who had recently published an article in his magazine consisting of shots of the graffiti at Fort Worden. He told us that he took 1600 shots of the rooms over the course of one or two days, which he pared down to a handful of favorites for the article. Something like the National Geographic photo process.

So the fort is one thing, and the art (?) is another. They happen to overlap.
