Still Learning To See

We share this planet

Briefly back in range of internet and wanted to post a few photographs I made while on Kodiak Island. These are places and creatures that are rapidly ceasing to exist when they have to deal with the full, brute force of humans. It is so clear being here that we share this planet and a gorgeous one it is.

Two Humpback Whales playing—it was so clearly that!—off Whale Island near Kodiak.

    What a perfect celebration of “the Fourth of July”–ah, if only we humans could live up to the majesty of this incredible land. I love the humpbacks playing–these are incredible photographs, John. Glad your “seeing” is being filled to overflowing!

    My photo of David Shutz in his colonial dressed vest, tri-pointed hat and breeches standing on the capitol steps reading the Declaration of Independence doesn’t measure up to your patriotic eagle and frolicking humpbacks, John, but we both can celebrate a Happy 236th USA birthday! Love seeing your Alaska images.
