It’s been awhile since I tossed up something from Shi Shi Beach, right? Yeah, that’s what I thought. It’s Wednesday, so I figured I’d toss this one out there. It’s one of those mediocre shots that I’ve been meaning to use for quite awhile, but the right time has just never really come up. It’s got some nice elements to it – I love the colors and the textures – but the composition just feels.. uninspired. Like, those random branches and stuff in the foreground, that’s just sloppy. Oh well, that’s what Wednesdays are for.
This view is looking out over Shi Shi Beach, in Olympic National Park, which takes up a large part of the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State. There are actually a couple parts to the park: there’s the part along the Pacific coast (this part), and there’s the part that covers most of the Olympic mountains, on the spine of the peninsula. You pronounce the name of this place “Shy Shy”, which is completely unrelated to the content of the previous sentence.
And while we’re in the habit of talking about unrelated things, have you noticed how all of the Flattr buttons and stuff disappeared? No, you haven’t, but that’s okay, because you didn’t actually notice that they were there in the first place. I know this, because the whole Flattr thing was apparently not a very popular idea around these parts. That’s right – it didn’t work out. I still love the concept, I’m just not super-duper impressed with the implementation. So I’m letting my account lapse. If you wanted to get in a couple last-minute flattrs for me, please feel free, but I’m not going to make a button available for you to do so. But don’t worry, you can always buy a flattr t-shirt.
