I posted a picture of the bridge of the ferry Hyak a while back. The huge and almost universally outdated ferries that ply the waters of the Puget Sound are a constant symbol of life in the North West, but unless you actually live on an island or commute to one, it’s not something you actually ride every day. Grey’s Anatomy not withstanding, these are things seen from afar, so when I do get a chance to ride one, it’s a lot of fun. Here is another picture I took on the same trip. Since the maximum capacity for most of these ships is based around cars, they usually have capacious passenger decks with few people on them. Getting a few shots of the uncrowded lines of the upper area and smokestack isn’t that hard, but I always love the mix of simple colors and shapes.
