Fort Stevens Revealed
The battlements at Fort Stevens State Park in Warrenton, Oregon are usually thought of as being plain gray concrete, with interesting textures, but devoid of color. The colors that are there seem muted, but after spending time in the deep recesses of the buildings, these colors reveal themselves. Each nook, each cranny, has green moss, old leaves, and graffiti (undesirable as it may be), some in red, yellow, and orange. The old rails that were used to move munitions have rusted into majestic reds and oranges. These images show, even emphasize, these colors, to illustrate anew and different aspect of the old structures, especially those most deeply hidden.
