Place in the world.


Some pretty pathways I have found on various walks over the years.  I find it heartwarming to find these little gems because they remind me that the path can be anywhere and lead anywhere.  Two of theres are in moderate sized parks, but the other two are walkways into private yards.

Photography 101: Landmark

The Mendenhall Glacier in Juneau Alaska is an impressive sight indeed.  Its sad to think that this amazing natural wonder is regressing faster and faster and will be gone someday.  Not in my lifetime, but someday.

It was a beautiful mile long walk out there (and back) along a trail like path that winds through plants and trees, small woodland creatures and bridges over little streams.

When you arrive at the beach you are presented with this lake that was formed by the glacier melting as well as a waterfall that must be 50+ feet high and spewing thousands of gallons of water over it and in the center of it all is the glacier itself, with smaller icebergs are scattered about.

I wish my photos could show you the incredible blue colors in the ice.  It was just amazing.  I look forward to going to Alaska again and I would love to take the 14 day cruise that goes farther north.


I was here.

Photography 101: The Natural World

It is amazing what we find when we are not looking. While I was hiking around in an area behind the beach house I was staying at on vacation I discovered that I had to navigate around some construction to get to the beach. After I had found the trail again, I looked in the other way briefly to make sure I had solid ground and there was this great tree. I never made it to the beach.

Photography 101: Water

Birch Bay, WA.  I was standing on the beach trying (and failing) to get a panorama shot of the beach this year.

Photography 101: Street

Streets are literal and amazing things for me. I can usually find something cool about them. I really like to try and capture them while in a moving vehicle.

These are just some of the many streets in my world. Fog and rain are recurring themes as I like them a lot.
