Over the weekend I headed north of Tacoma to Port Townsend, Washington. I was going for a wedding that I was second shooting, but I left early so I could spend some time exploring.  I am so incredibly glad I took some time for my own work.  Port Townsend is a beautiful little town, gorgeous old buildings, water, shops and restaurants. Bed and Breakfasts, coffee shops, and buskers on the corners.

I was so glad I had found a pack of film for my Polaroid (moving twice in 6 months makes it hard to remember where things have disappeared, even important things like film).  I only took two shots with the land camera, but the two photos I took made me incredibly happy.

Spending a few hours alone with my thoughts and my cameras was just what I needed.  When was the last time you gave yourself permission to be alone like that?
