CDP theme: photographing the photographer

My wife, Shari took these photos of me on Murphy Dome back in 1998 when we lived in Fairbanks, Alaska.  This could be the beginning of spring because there was still snow on the dome.  Murphy Dome was a great place to go for some wonderful views of the landscape, watch the aurora and also a great place to pick blueberries which we did.   I believe the camera I'm using was a Canon AE1.

  2. Looks like in winter-Finland. The hands are freezing easily when you take photographs.
    I like these photos.

  11. What great memories you must have! These are wonderful shots. Taking photographs back then was a very different thing. It is amazing how much photography has changed.

  18. I am impressed that you can find photos from 1998. My own filing system is deficient. As in "non-existent."
