Bremerton to Seattle Ferry | January 12, 2007 | Thomas Hyde

I think this could end up being a long-term project and although this kind of subject has been photographed ad naseum, i hope i'm bringing a little bit of my own style to it. What do you think ... is this interesting to you, do you think it holds promise as an extended essay project?

Input greatly appreciated :))

    I ride the ferries quite a bit...and I like these. B/W works so well on Puget Sound. Boy, the ferry system here is in the news almost daily, isn't it. Our fleet is getting old, and the powers that be need to find some money, because the WFS is so vital here.

    Right, bad weather can make for good photos, especially in B & W. I rarely ride the ferries but am amazed at the photo possibilities everytime i do ... quite probably because i do it so rarely, it always seems fresh. thanks for the input :))

    I don't know how you nail such dramatic lighting but your photojournalistic shots always look so film noir thumb.gif

    Phenomenal! I am always amazed at the sheer artistry and realism you manage to produce from every day situations. A true photojournalist and artist! If you decided to do a series on paper bags I'd gladly pull up a chair.:D

    Love that second shot posted! I felt cold looking at it . . .
    I'm from the PNW too and maybe the ferry thing has been overdone in this area but only with the typical mundane standard kind of shot . . . yours are not mundane or standard by any means. Most ferry shots make our boats look so glamourous and modern . . . HA!

    What is this?
    Wow, thank you all for the encouragement!!! Didn't really expect all the posts so i'm charged up now. I'm off to the ferry again this afternoon, and i'll see if there are some paper bags lying around ;-) thanks again!

    And ...

    Discovered an odd little thing in one of the above pictures, can't quite figure out what the heck this is?, have an idea but not sure, very strange, i waited for the seagulls to be in the right spot for this shot and got a little lucky but what else is in here? ... here it is blown up and sharpened as good as it's gonna get ....

    Just wanted to chime in that I think these are fantastic!!! As far as the mystery in the window...at first I thought maybe just bird poo, but it looks like a mangled gull falling from the sky! eek7.gifheadscratch.gif
