Pudding Creek Trestle at Sunset

I love running across photos in my library that I’d forgotten about. I need to allocate more time to going through back albums. (Click the photo for a better, larger view.)

The Pudding Creek Trestle in Fort Bragg, California once carried lumber by train, and has since been refurbished as a walkway.

If you like the work I do, please consider signing up for my low-volume newsletter that I use to announce new projects, items, and giveaways that I think my readers would be interested in.

My friend Chris Breen takes wonderful photos from the beach that is 10 minutes from his house. In fact, it seems as if he posts one every time I’m stuck in my office on a deadline, which (a) makes me long to be at a beach, any beach; (b) makes me silently curse Chris for lording it over everyone like me; (c) reminds me that I actually live within walking distance of a Seattle beach (below) and should get my damn work done so I can go enjoy it.

Chris wrote about the beach photos he takes and why he does it, in the process touching on important photographic essentials like actively seeing a scene and looking for new colors, textures, and compositions in familiar surroundings. Go read it now and enjoy the photos: About the beach photos.
