I could have titled this post "Chasing Children". These days I haven't been taking many photographs of my grandchildren. They really aren't cooperative. The minute they hear the beep of a recording device, they put on their blank, emotionless or worse scathing stares. They run away endeavoring to defeat all attempts to capture their joyous, carefree lives. As a Grammy, I try to give them their space. But, it isn't easy to watch all those precious moments go by undocumented. I know how quickly the magic of childhood passes. So, I sneak in a snap here and there. Someday when they are grown with children of their own, they will look back and appreciate their photographic history. This is my oldest captured while I chased her chasing bubbles.
Is was a wet and foggy morning in Juneau, AK. Due to schedule changes we had to cancel our whale watching excursion and were left with free time. From the ship we could see the Mount Roberts Tramway making its way up the side of the mountain.
After a short walk, we were on the tram and quickly lifted from sea level to 1800 feet. In minutes we left the cruise ships below in the Gastineau Channel and were lifted into the alpines and rain forest above.
We didn't see a lot of color in the sunrises and sunsets while in Alaska. Most of the days were full of fog and mist. Each were beautiful in their own unique ways. One morning for a few moments there was color in the sky. I stood shivering and barefoot on my balcony to capture the one and only colorful sunrise on our cruise while my husband snoozed.
I recently visited Alaska. While in Skagway, I took a tour bus through the Yukon Territory into Canada via the Klondike Highway to visit the Yukon Suspension Bridge. I thought I would share a few snaps of the view from the bridge. Use your imagination to hear the roar of the Tutshi River below, the sway of the walkway beneath you and the buzz of mosquitoes about your head to get the full experience!
As you can see from my part one blog post, there are more painting and mixed media works than photography is this year's show. I felt honored to have "Twilight" juried into the mix, and to have my image included on the program and brochure. Thank you for taking the time to view the show. I hope you enjoyed it! :-)
This is the AOY Art Center where the show is exhibited.

The AOY Center is such a creative environment. Even the stepping stone outside of farmhouse is artsy!
