I had a brief opportunity Wednesday to photograph two members of a large team of contractors working beneath Deception Pass Bridge. One of them is from Texas, the other from Boston, Massachusetts. This months-long bridge repair and painting project is being completed by Cekra Construction of North Carolina under contract with the state Department of Transportation. Industrial work including bridge projects is Cekra’s forte.
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.
