Crystals

These ice crystals were growing all over the ground when I was out at the Shrine of St. Therese the other day. Now it has snowed again, so I'm sure they are all covered up.

Erika Ann

The weather has been perfect the past several days (by perfect I mean clear skies--it's been in the 30s temperature wise). Since I had today off from work, I drove out to the Shrine of St. Therese. Erika Ann is the fishing boat in this photograph. I imagine on a day like today, with this scenery in the background, it's not too bad to be out fishing.

Photo Friday: Blur

Conveniently I was going to post this picture anyway when I discovered that this week's Photo Friday theme is "Blur." I was experimenting with my camera while driving (ok, I wasn't driving, I was a passenger....and no animals were harmed during this experiment.) I wasn't sure how the lights would show up, but I liked how this turned out.

If I knew I'd tell you

It has been raining for a couple days now--that really cold, just want to stay inside with a cup of cocoa, rain. Needless to say, it has kept me inside for the most part, not really wanting to get out and take photos around Juneau. So, I decided to post a photo that is from this past summer. I took this photo while on a helicopter "familiarization ride" (more like a sightseeing trip) of the area for work. We flew over this glacier, and I wish I could tell you which one it was, but I really don't know.

Photo Friday: Disguise

We got some fresh snow today, so I went downtown to take this picture of Patsy Ann disguised by the snow.

For those of you not familiar , here is the story of Patsy Ann (her statue pictured above).

Patsy Ann, a Bull Terrier, was born in Portland, Oregon in 1929 and came to Juneau as a puppy. In 1934 Patsy Ann was named the "Official Greeter of Juneau because she met every ship that pulled into town at the wharf--and she knew the ships were coming long before they were in sight.

This statue sits on the wharf today, waiting to greet all the cruise ship passengers that come to town every summer. Want to know more? She has her own site: www.patsyann.com
