I love summer in Fairbanks. It's such a crazy, bright time of year. We're like squirrels packing away all the sun in storage for winter. It works! I am already exhausted and looking forward to dark, cold, peaceful, quiet... I guess it's a good sign that I am excited for winter. (It only took 7 years!) Although if I re-read this in six months I'll wonder what was the matter with me?

It's starting to get dark, kindof, late at night.

healthy hiatus

Since starting a summer photography class, I've posted exactly zero photos on this blog... mostly because I spend enough time in front of the computer - at work, and Photoshop for the class (digital photography). I've also been humbled by how little of the basics I remember of photography, and how little I knew about how to use my camera. The class is helping. Hopefully there will be a noticeable improvement in my photos as a result, but in the meantime I am getting back to the basics... a good thing!
