Re: Coastal defense, old-style

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.
