Many apologies for my absence from the MTFPSO for a few weeks there. The joys of working my first retail Christmas meant that I had no time for anything else. I love Christmas, but I'm glad the retail side of it is over. I'm happy to be back and participating in this week's Shoot-Out on Fences, chosen by Sandra Leigh from Vancouver Island.
The beginning of the week, when I was working, was absolutely gorgeous. Sunny (mid) days, a little snow....until (of course) my days off on Wednesday and Thursday. It's still too dark for most of the day to shoot before or after work, and it was so soggy on my days off that I couldn't risk the camera to take new photos, so here are a few old ones of fences in Juneau.
Juneau is fenced in by the Gastineau Channel on one side...
(Here, we're also literally fenced into the boardwalk, away from the channel and its freezing waters. People never swim in it, although they do kayak on it, and there are some adorable harbor seals that stare up at you with huge, dark eyes. Every once in awhile, some intrepid whales make the swim into the channel's waters during a high tide. They tend to cause accidents on parallel roads. Not so good.)
...and huge mountains on the other.
Then of course we have our regular fences.
Not a terribly prolific post this week, but I'm looking forward to getting back in the swing of shooting during the week. It's getting brighter every day, and I'm just itching to work on photos with the new editing software my parents got me for Christmas. The software is fabulous and also incredibly complex, so it's taking me awhile to really grasp it. Next week should see some improvement!
