Douglas Morning

I’m slowly catching up.

Heather’s mom is back in Nevada. Weddings have slowed a bit (though I have another this weekend!) Travel has subsided, and Juneau weather has been poor. The perfect storm of catching up with my personal photo backlog!

These are from an early-morning outing to North Douglas. I think I was out the door at around 4:15, so the first few shots of the deer were still a bit on the dusky side of things (thank goodness for high ISO options). It was a good morning for variety. I don’t think I’ve ever captured bunnies/rabbits/hares/whatever-they’re-called before…

I heard one story of a photographer’s wife receiving a phone call early in the morning because a police officer had found her car parked in the median of the highway with the driver nowhere to be seen. It turned out he had gone for a walk when he saw the perfect light, and eventually returned to find police company. Go figure. Maybe we’re a bit absent minded when it comes to those sort of details?

I call this “A Photographer’s Car”… For obvious reasons… 🙂

As I’m driving around and see something I like to photograph, I often park the car and hop out. This photo was me realizing that I left it running, door open, in the middle of the road for nearly 20 minutes while I wandered down an unmarked path.

And my favorite shot from the day? It was one of the first ones I captured… I had gone out in search for some deer, and whatdya know, there they were:


Coming Up for Air

Aha, clever title eh? Not only does it sorta fit with the images below, but it sort of fits with the last couple of weeks.

My last post, Jayleen, was an impromptu session that came from wanting to get out to Sentinel Island in order to survey the lands before myself and a collection of 8 more intrepid souls ventured onto the island for a wedding ceremony. As it turns out, the weather was so daunting on the 30th for the ceremony that we didn’t spend much time on the island, or even outside for that matter!

The past couple of weeks has been supremely busy with photography.

  • 23rd? A wedding.
  • 30th? Another wedding (the Sentinel Island outing – in the rain!)
  • 1st & 2nd? Leveled with a cold.
  • 3rd? Wedding!
  • 4th & 5th? A bit of the 4th (like an hour or two) and then more laying low.
  • 6th? Another wedding!
  • 7th? A portrait session with the bride & groom!
  • 8th & 9th? The cold finally caught up with me. Leveled again.
  • 10th? Back!
  • 11th? Mother-in-law comes to visit!

Like I said, it’s been a fun run. And, to whet your thirst (haha, there I go again), here are a few images I snagged during the 4th festivities over on Douglas!
