Image Journal #2

Blinding high noon sun

HIgh Noon Sun MC Shellmakes for great shadows.

Shadows by MC ShellCars whizzing by on a two lane highway–mountains covered in glaciated ice to the left and a half-frozen choppy Cook Inlet to the right. Which would be a better death–a mountainside collision or drowning in the cold waters of the far north?

Road to Girdwood by MC ShellTwo days of downhill action for the boys–this is so different from my Kansas childhood. I did not see a mountain until my late teens. They have known rugged ridges all of their lives.

Tree Bits by MC ShellAnother half-finished favorite just might make it to the quilting phase.

Dress Form MC ShellI hope everyone is enjoying the last days of 2013.
