My digital SLR camera, a Nikon D50, is able to detect infrared light. Using an infrared filter, I can take photographs of that light. Since infrared radiation is put out by heated objects, the resulting images tend to show the trees and grass brightly, but water and the sky is dark.
We’ve lived in a spectrum of climates over the last five years. At one extreme, we have the arid brown of Bend. At the other, we have the lush green of Bellingham. I think the feel of each climate is reflected in the color palettes of the following photos.
Last I posted, we lived in Bend, Oregon. That was so two cities ago.
Now we’re back in Bellingham via Portland.
All our moves since 2011 have formed a lowercase ‘b’ on the maps of Washington and Oregon. I just hope we stop with that and not move to, say, Wenatchee to start forming an uppercase ‘B’.
Don’t tell me you didn’t see a cemetery post coming from a mile away!
Bayview Cemetery in Bellingham is one of my favorite places. It’s a pleasure to stroll through and large enough to offer plenty of opportunities for exploration.
A few posts ago, I mused on the word haunt. In keeping with that theme, here are some photo manipulations* of houses in Bellingham that were meant to convey a haunting mood. Of course, whether they succeed or not is up to you to decide!
