White sails

Published June 6, 2018 / by Steve Berentson

Sometimes I imagine being back in the newspaper darkroom, usually printing from Kodak Tri-X film. Color was not an option in the Seventies when I spent much of my time souping film and making screen prints. Shots like this one from a recent Fidalgo Bay sailing competition cry out to be converted to black and white.

About Steve Berentson
A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
