i’m only about fifty percent satisfied with the pictures i take until i remind myself that i’m usually trying to photograph something while watching or playing jungle gym to my three and five year old kids.
i had noticed this view earlier and as the ferry blew its horn signaling its departure there was an unexpected break in tourists about. so i asked natalie to watch the kids and scrambled back to take this picture.
i was feeling quite happy with myself that i had pulled off this little composed shot when out of nowhere this woman in a red sweater appears, as if transported there.
as every avid trekkie knows, a red shirt on an away mission never lasts til the next commercial break and i was certain this one would not either. but i was disappointed to see her lingering in my periphery, then doubly disappointed when she walked right in to my shot, and ultimately ill when she escaped the park grounds with no orca whale having jumped from the puget sound to engulf her.
