Rudy’s BBQ Sause

Rudy’s BBQ Sause

I don’t think Anchorage is a hot spot for BBQ.  At least I am still looking.  One place had the greasiest brisket I have ever had to endure.  Most are just cook-it-in-the-oven-and-put-bbq-sauce-on-it establishments.  I started working on my rub recipe when I remembered I could order Rudy’s. I have to admit this was my favorite […]

My Friend Ed

My Friend Ed

Today Ed Gold started shakedown  trials for his #SuzukiTL1000s motorcycle.  He bought it for $400.00 and then searched for parts all over the world to make it better than new.  I followed him down to  #BrownBearBar at #IndianRiver in the #Hummer #H3 to make sure all went well.  It did.  Extra points: His “Silver Sufer” series […]

Last year I bought a Polaroid 110 -> 4×5 conversion thinking it would be a much simpler way of shooting large format than carrying a large and bulky monorail and supporting tripod. loaned it to my friend Ed Gold (pictured above) who used it for his Galena, Alaska  book project. New55FILM are a kickstarter designing new […]

Our Lady of Guadalupe Parish-Anchorage, Alaska One of the hardest things for me is finding something to photograph.  I work long hours, have way too many things and things to plan and do.  I have driven by this church daily for almost two years when all of a sudden, last week, it “saw it”.  I looked at it from a different angle, […]

I was off from work today. So I decided to cook some BBQ ribs.  I slow cooked some pork ribs for 8 hours. Fall off the bone goodness.  Beer, Jublie, 10+% content.  Potato salad and baked beans.

Sterling, AK?

Sterling, AK?

Next week I am heading to Sterling, AK to visit Wayne and his lovely wife.  When I got here, I was able to park my camper at  Fox Run RV Park. Desi and Scott took me under their wing. I can never, ever say enough good things about those two!  Through them I actually learned […]

North to Alaska (Day #0)

North to Alaska (Day #0)

Wow-almost two years since I bid farewell to Houston and my family.  I really loved that house and cried as I drove away for the last time.  Patty bought it for me.  I think I am ready to start writing down thoughts about going North to Alaska. I work for a large oil company.  Had […]

Ed Gold Converting a Polaroid to a 4×5

Ed Gold borrowed my Polaroid 110 4×5 conversion to take with him on his Galena Project.  Amazed.  Imagine, he’s out on a frozen river taking part in a search for the body of a Galena resident while taking photographs of life in Galena.  So cold, at -40 degrees, that he has to compensate, off the […]

Aurora Borealis IV

Aurora Borealis IV

What I have learned…  so far (with Tom McMurtrey)  Gallery We are still very much newbies, having seen the Aurora twice, but we have learned there is a process we can follow to help us capture images.  The caveat is that we have yet to use a film camera, my preferred type of camera-but it is […]
