Post Sport Fishing in Seward

Well, the bottom line is that it has become infinitely easier for me to post images (and that in and of itself proposes a series of challenges (from camera battery charging to downloading to enhancing raw image files) on the road - with unpredictable electrical power and internet access.

              I'm not whining, just making an observation.

                                                                                      I've got about eight entries (mostly writing) "in-progress"; however, finding the time to finish them has been somewhat of a challenge. For example, it is now 11;15, I'm sitting in a RV park Wi-Fi dedicated room, waiting for the load of laundry to dry, and trying to focus on finishing the writing.

                                                                                                                   We went on a sport fishing cruise today, bucking the advent of (predicted) gale force winds tonight, 50 miles outside Seward. A  tale to be told in its entirety, later. This is the only photo, going out, before my camera battery died.




However, we returned to our camp site (in the rain) thoroughly exhausted (having secured a little less than thirty pounds of halibut fillets) and, after resting/recovering for a couple of hours had dinner.
                             This is Marshall's homage to "Mark in Alaska - Eating out of a Chili Can."

FIVE Views of The High One

"Denali" means "The High One" in Athabascan (the tribe native to the region), and it is most appropriate for the highest peak in North America.

                                                                                Well, we woke up Thursday (September 2) to incredibly clear skies, and decided to drive into the Park.
                                                                                               We had resigned ourselves to the fact that we were probably part of the "70%" club; that is, the percentage of visitors to the Park that do not see Denali.
However, eight miles down the road we were rewarded with a vision of it! We could see it all day, up to 100 miles away.....




























A New Direction

Marshall and I went to Alaska together in 2010. The vehicle that we traveled in (Marshall's Sprinter) was so enjoyable that I bought one in late summer 2011, and have begun to make frequent trips around the west.
Right now, Marshall and Bonnie are in Marfa, Texas (on Facebook, check out "A Month in Marfa.")
Next month, we're going to begin and post a website of postcards between artists, dating back to the early 1970s.
I'm probably going to launch a new blog in the next couple of months.....travels around the west, and my work on the archives of photographers L.H. ("Ben") Benschneider, and Robert C. Bishop. Stay tuned.

Cultivated Places, and Places Which are Not

Marbella, Spain, on the coast of the Mediterranean. It seems a bit odd to try and search for "unspoiled" landscapes in this day and age.Still, as any photographer knows, there is great beauty to be experienced in any moment.
