Lamp’s Eye View
Once again, comments on an earlier post about this topic have resulted in a post title. These barbecues, or grilles as I suspect they are locally called, were lined up and waiting to be shared, as can be seen in the other shots from this Friday Harbor series.
This cabin looked unoccupied, and the door was not locked, so I went to see the lamp’s view for myself. I was worried it might be indignant at being moved aside for one of these shots, but there was not a flicker of objection, and I did return it to its station quickly.
I chose an HDR treatment to get a balance between the inside and outside, but also to show the varnished plywood which used to be the finish in all rooms inside these cottages – now mostly painted over. I have childhood memories of these walls, seeing them in the middle of the night, being surrounded by them for months on end each year. I am glad some of them are still in their original state.
Edit: I lost the opening paragraph somehow, so have replaced it.
