Some like to row and this day was perfect for it. The wind was calm and the water smooth on Tacoma's Commencement Bay. Two large bulk cargo ships lay at anchor some distance away with fog just lifting in the morning sun. You can just make out the name of the nearest ship, "Wren."
I created large format silver photographs of my home town for 20 years from 1990 through 2010. These are rich, beautifully crafted silver images processed for permanence. Vintage prints are made within a year of the photograph create date. My usual practice was to print within a few days or weeks of exposure. There are at most six prints per image; most images have three or fewer prints.
