Pipe Dreams

It took numerous times driving past the 8-foot galvanized storm detention pipes by Walgreens and ProBuild before retired architect Robert Wagoner could no longer resist the corrugated eye candy. “I particularly love taking images that are abstractions of reality, making the viewer wonder what was captured in the photo and illustrating the place/object/image in a new way,” said Wagoner, who has lived on the island for 35 years. Always on the lookout, Wagoner is the former president of the Bainbridge Island Photo Club and now serves as its education chair. The construction site inspired two trips to capture the pipe, once alone and then once with a model, his partner and avid yogi, 37-year resident Penelope Wood. Without a doubt, this shot’s an ace in the hole.
