Port Townsend Wabi Sabi

As promised, here's a wabi-sabi photo from Port Townsend, WA.



Why is this image wabi-sabi? Well, to some extent, wabi-sabi is in the eye and heart of the beholder. To me, the image is a bit somber, but not sad. It evokes a sense of solitude and quiet. The driftwood in the foreground  is weathered, even battered, by the ocean before coming to rest on the shore of the Sound. I feel a sense of timelessness when I look at the picture, while at the same time I am aware of the impermanence of all life.

What do you think?
