Last week I was in Petersburg, Alaska to attend the 50th annual Little Norway Festival which celebrates the town’s Norwegian heritage, Norway’s Constitution Day and U.S. Armed Forces Day. The annual parade, which started in 1958, features rowdy fur-clad Vikings and Valkyries. Photographing people during this festival reminded me of my fourteen years of working at daily newspapers, which is where I started my photography career. Don’t get me wrong, I love shooting nature and wildlife, but I still miss shooting the daily life of people. I enjoy the search for that one image that defines whatever is unfolding before me. It is a never ending quest and it is always fun to see what happens.
Thank you for visiting.
