Seward

2008-04-27

Seward Alaska lies right along the coast of the halibut capitol of the world. This means a lot of boats and a lot of fishermen (fisher people for the politically correct). A tiny little town with a lovely cosy atmosphere. For those touring Alaska, this is should be a definite location. If the skies are clear, which is rare for this part of the world, one can see the Fjords national park that lies across the bay. One can book a cruise or a tour from the park headquarters in Seward for a closer look at the walls of ice.

I was on a family trip and with limited time (we were heading up to Denali park) we didn’t have time for the tour, but visited the shops and ate the best fish and chips that I have ever eaten.
Halibut cooked in Seward was caught the same day as prepared, or so they told us, regardless it was delicious. Some where in between Seward and anchorage, I forget the exact location, is the Benny Benson memorial, I forget what it is exactly and can only laugh every time I see the photo of us in front of it. I think it’s my favorite memorial ever, and would also recommend a stop for a lovely photo opportunity with it. It’s a long drive along the coast and one may need to stop for a pit stop, not to worry there is plenty of coverage for those suffering stage fright. I love Alaska and wish I could afford to go again.

    The World According to Herr Willie: Lake Toba

    Talking about the creation of the world. A big bang, meteors hitting planets, ice age and tectonic breakdancing. The world is an incredible start up and the landscapes, that were created through the elements and time. Sometimes your eyes can still see this amazing process in a timelapse. Such a mystical place is Lake Toba in North Sumatra. Or as the locals call it: Danau Toba.

    A Salute to the Masters: Ice Skating (A Tribute to Monte Fresco)

    This article is dedicated to one of the finest British sport photographers, Monte Fresco. In his 30 years of reportage for the Daily Mirror, he took some of the most iconic photographs in sporting history. He covered football, tennis, and boxing. But it is his ice skating pictures that I am most fascinated with. Using my own lens, I give him a modern tribute.

    The World According to Herr Willie: Ilha de Marajó

    Brazil is an awesome country for traveling. There's so much to explore, each place very different from one another. It will definitely take a stretch of trips just to get to know this this South American pearl. I finished my copa tour last year in Marajó, the island of bulls—it just might be an eternal highlight for me.

    Lomography Asks: Is It Acceptable to Photograph the Homeless?

    "Is it acceptable to photograph the homeless?" is one of the most hotly-debated topics when it comes to street photography. There are two opposing sides to this: those who believe it is, and those who don't. For those who do, capturing such photographs is mere documentation of the world around us. For those who don't, doing so is a form of exploitation.

    Eugenia Loli's Surreal Collages

    In the hands of those capable wielding it, art can be a powerful weapon. With it, for one, creation of fantastical realms far removed from the one we live in is entirely possible. Through collage making, Eugenia Loli builds such worlds that invite the audience not only to marvel at them but also, and most importantly, to see through the hodgepodge of images to find meaning and formulate interpretations.

    A Salute to the Masters: Bare Soles in Como (A Tribute to Christopher Anderson)

    The young artist and Magnum photographer Christopher Anderson published on his agency's website an awesome photo series, one of the images in it a great symbol of freedom, joy of living outdoors, purity, innocence, candor, and girlhood: the bare sole of a female lifted up, taken at the Central Park in New York. Like many other great Magnum photographers, Anderson explored this interesting body part through photographs. For this tribute, I chose a series of bare feet images I took along the promenade of the lake Como. Take a look!
