Inspired by Barry's passion for his community, I've decided to take part in the My Town Friday Photo Shoot Out, a project begun to get bloggers out into their communities and showing them off to each other. For more information about this project and how to join it, visit the "Friday Shoot Out Gang's" blog here.
This week's theme was "Sunrises/Sunsets". Here in Juneau, we have an interesting relationship with the sun. For half of the year it's our incessant pal, always present (albeit hidden behind a curtain of clouds like the Wizard in "The Wizard of Oz"), swooping just below the horizon for only a few hours each early morning. For the other half of the year it's a scorned lover, barely showing its face and even then, just peeking above the mountains to remind us it's there. We worship its rare presence the entire year 'round, skipping work and class when it peeks out from behind the clouds in summer and doing the same when it briefly shows its face in winter.

The sunrise shone through my steaming windows and I couldn't resist this photo
And when the sun doesn't shine, we make it---by taking superfluous amounts of Vitamin D!
This is Kip's and my favorite type: Vitamin D in gummy form. Why take a pill when you can have a gummy? It even mentions sun right in the title!!
Now you all go enjoy your places of residence where the sun shines for a normal amount of time!
