The Pierce County Ferry at Steilacoom

Steilacoom Ferry from Scott Wood on Vimeo.

My day job has had me running really hard the last few months and while a real vacation doesn’t seem to be an option right now, I did take this past Friday off in hopes of “re-charging the batteries” a bit and getting out and doing a little shooting.  While I can’t say that a single day really helped with my work burnout level, it was nice to get out of the house with the sole goal of doing a little shooting.  I ended up fining myself in Steilacoom, WA near the Pierce County Ferry docks.

I have been to this location before, and always thought it would be a nice place for a time lapse video, and with their being a few puffy clouds in the sky on Friday I setup for that very purpose.  I had no idea that the ferry would come into dock, unload/reload, and then head back out again, but I am thrilled that it did, it sort of became the reason for the time lapse, even if it wasn’t when I started shooting.

    Very neat. I loved watching the boats come and go as the clouds moved overhead. I had to watch it 3 times!
