Downtown

This is a view of downtown Camas, Washington that highlights the pretty tree lined streets, entertainment at the Liberty Theater, and downtown merchants against the backdrop of a blue sky streaked by the smoke stacks of the local paper mill that was instrumental in founding this town along the Columbia River.

I captured this image on a sunny afternoon. To highlight the nostalgia and the small town hominess I softened the colors and added some contrast to the sky giving definition to the several elements that compose this image and the town itself. The lighter weight of line and color lends a hopeful forward looking tone to the scene that reflects my own filtered vision of the town.
