Mackerel Sky

It was a good day. I could ride the Seattle ferries all day, and so I did on May 28th.

Once again Black and White has such a different feeling than color. In black and white man becomes another shape, almost negative space, part of the seascape, not human so much as a symbol for Everyman.

In the second photo, color adds humanity. As he looks to the side the viewer eye is drawn more to the man himself, who is he? Where is he going? Is he meeting someone or looking to the future?


I would put this photo in the category ‘street’, it’s not street per se but it is public transportation. Sea lanes are ‘streets’.
