Holiday Postcard

in General, Photography

I’m en route to Alaska … somewhere in the Hecate Strait on the Coral Princess.

When I wake up tomorrow I will be in Ketchikan. I can’t wait to take photos!

(Sam my boy if you are reading this, I’ve found you a bear claw! — Girls, I miss you all)

i wish you were here

    The photo looks like you’re really missing someone special.
    So you love taking pictures also? I’m loving it too.

    well if it was a summer postcard i would suggest a Greek island . now the best option is a leaf on a new york road

  • Baby Pushchairs June 4, 2009, 10:33 am

    Hope you have a great time! I could really do with one of those drinks right now :)

  • Cindi June 4, 2009, 11:32 am

    Sounds wonderful! Make the best of your lovely trip!

  • Cindy June 4, 2009, 12:46 pm

    Sounds like you are having a great adventure. It’s funny but what I noticed first about the picture was the face that is made by the object in the background.

    The out of focus black dots appear to be eyes and that stuff in the middle hair standing up. Then a bit lower that big white ball appears to be a nose and just under that a crooked smile.

    Drink look nice too, lol!

    I have a friend who lives in Alaska. He said it’s really cold there. I bet I couldn’t last an hour on that place. T_T Have a safe trip.

    That drink looks yummy! :)

    That’s great. I can hardly wait to see the pictures. We’ve talked about going on that Alaskan cruise ourselves, probably more for the pictures (and the beer).

  • John @ Digital Media College June 12, 2009, 1:10 pm

    Bear claws are quite the sight. Isn’t it nice to be traveling alone, certainly allows one to relax without worries.

    All this talk of a vacation is making me jealous. I agree with the others seeing some pics should appease me. It is always great to take a little time for yourself when you can.


  • Chloe Alice Wilson July 2, 2009, 2:53 am


    My 8 year old son is very jealous of the bear claw. I’m jealous of the holiday. Do you have any more photos?

    Cheers, Chloe
