Center Church, Lopez Island 2013

 

In September I spent a week camping on Lopez Island.  The night before we were scheduled to return to the mainland we were driving to see the sunset on Shark Reef.  As is all to common with me, I made a wrong turn.  I ended up coming around a curve and being greeted with the sight of this beautiful church.  I stopped and shot a roll of film there.  This one is my favorite and reminds me and everyone that has seen the print of Paul Strands famous fence image from Pittsburg.

We did make it to Shark Reef just in time for sunset and enjoyed a bottle of wine and a picnic together.  It was a beautiful experience.
