An exercise in photographing things in doubles.
Come sit with me in the garden, in the field, under a pine, at the boundary markers. I like to place chairs and hammocks at different places on my property, inviting conversations for two.
The Jamestown S’Klallam tribe built several new totem poles in recent years. This one is double sided. The top hat structure indicates wealth in giving potlatches. Thuderbird faces north and south, the bay and the mountains. You can barely see the edge of it’s wing facing the camera. Beneath Thunderbird is Beaver, holding its tail. The Jamestown people bought their land on Washington’s North Olympic Peninsuala instead of letting it become a reservation. They have a village, casino, fire station, seafood store, gas station with deli and convenience store, medical facility, and cultural center. This totem pole is at the fire station.
