Visit Harris Avenue Cafe

2010 was tough, but a creative gold mine.  I took thousands of photographs this past summer and fall!   I was scheduled to display my work at Harris Avenue Cafe this month, so I had to narrow it down to my 10 favorites.   This was quite the challenge.

After much debate and buying a $5 Home Depot hammer, I nailed my 10 framed choices to their walls.  So, if you happen to be up in Bellingham, Washington…and in the Fairhaven area…and if you happen to be hungry, you should visit Harris Avenue Cafe!   I personally recommend the Eggs Toulouse with smoked salmon.  

Here are the 10 I am displaying.  Which is your favorite and why?  I ask because, as a photographer, I’m always curious as to what moves people.

You can purchase prints from my website at   If you are interested in any of the above photos, which are already framed and matted, visit my website for contact information.   I am willing to print, frame, and mat any photo of your choice from my galleries.  Canvas prints are also an option (much less expensive if you purchase from me directly than from the website).  

I love doing this stuff!

  1. Thank you everyone for your feedback and warm support! It’s definitely exciting to be able to display these.

    I think one of the things I’ve learned is to have a strong subject. From reading other people’s blogs and looking at photography, I have gotten in the habit of naming my shots when I take them. This helps me focus on what is unique about the shot. I’m still an amateur and getting my feet wet, so please, no one feel shy about giving me suggestions!

  2. I think they are all great. But Pursuit is my favorit. It reminds me of the daily morning walks I used to do with my dog to the marina area where this photo was taken.

    Congrats on your showing at Harris Cafe. I used to eat there often. They have the best breakfast. I lived in Bellingham for 20 years and regret moving away. Hopefully, I will be able to move back soon.

  3. Congratulations on the showing of your work. What a wonderful honor and celebration of such talent.

    My favorite…. “Fallen” – I love the contrast between the rocks, metal, wood, and the colors of the leaf. It has a Feng shui vibe to it as well with all the elements. ❤ it !

  4. Oh, wow–congratulations on getting to show your work. It’s hard to decide which one I like best–they are all beautiful. Let me go back and try again.

    Okay–definitely a toss up between ‘Fallen’ and ‘On Edge.’

    Have a great time!

  5. Beautiful images, Jolene!

    My favorites:

    Vanishing Point…I love the mood of this which strikes me as somewhat mysterious. The narrowness of the passageway, the solitude of the subject, and his hidden identity add to the intrigue for me. I also like the texture of the brick walls.

    Fallen…Love the simplicity of this and the DoF as well as the “pop” of color against a subdued background.

    Rusted and Closed Door…The beauty of decay… Well-spotted and captured by you, as always.

    Congratulations on your exhibition!

  6. Have to agree with David. Pursuit is my favorite. Composition, colors, overall a great shot. Water and sky are two of my favorite things to shoot.

  7. Hands down, Pursuit. It’s the colours in the photograph. My only (slight) issue is the reflection of the masts (?) are cut off in the reflection.

    Vanishing is a very close second and the reasoning is, I LOVE how your eyes are automatically led through the image and exits out the top left. Love the leading lines, the colours, I even like the motion of the guys foot! 😀

  8. Wow, Jolene, all of these are stunning! You’ve got a great eye for a good shot.

    My favourites are:

    Fallen – The colours are interesting. That leaf contrasting with the darker, duller colours. Also the contrasts between metal, wood, stone and leaf textures.
    Pursuit – I like water shots. This one also has a peacefulness to it. Like the cloudiness.
    Vanishing Point – Just a great shot. The angle you’ve taken it at leads you down the alley.
    Closed Door – Just your ability to make old and not-so-perfect things look beautiful.

    Wish I could come to your exhibition. Much success with it!
