The Cat That Was a Dog

I don’t usually post personal stuff here.  You don’t need to see pictures of my kids or my house or my other projects.  You don’t need to see pictures of my cat.  Well sometimes you do.  But this one is just to say goodbye.  Rugby was with me for 16 years and yesterday was the end.  He was loving and stoic and never complained.  He met two kids and lived with us in four houses.  He’s going to be hard to live without.

Lime Kiln Lighthouse in Green

Lighthouses are easy – super distinctive architecture makes the photo part obvious.

This is the Lime Kiln Lighthouse on the west shore of San Juan Island.  I’m not sure I like the lines from this angle but I didn’t want to straighten the building or the horizon.  I really like what the sky does with the LomoChrome Purple film on a bright day.  This was taken with no filter, FWIW.  This film can be pushed from 100-400, which is what I shot this at, using my old Canon A1 and a 50mm lens.  I’m not sure if the grain pattern would be significantly different at 100, but it’s fun to see it this way.  I didn’t retouch this more or less at all.
