lorashank The rose speaks of love silently, in a language known only to the heart.~ This red rose bud brings back recent memories with my Dad. I always took photos at his house of the flowers in their yard. Often, he would come out in the yard and talk to me as I was taking pics. Red roses was his favorite flower. These little rose buds were the last to bloom this past Fall.
Just a gentle reminder of appreciating the little moments in life. When we look back, those moments make the sweetest memories.

Love and Miss You~
RIP Dad 11/29/2014

lorashank The City of Seward is South Central Alaska’s playground. A small unique community of 3000 people, Seward is located 125 miles south of Anchorage at the beginning (mile 0) of the Seward Highway. National Geographic Adventure Magazine listed Seward among the top ten adventure-based outposts in America.

We rented this beautiful home for a few days while visiting in Seward. The house was nestled against the mountain side overlooking the town and within walking distance from the harbor.

lorashank Seward’s Small Boat Harbor is situated on the northern edge of Resurrection Bay.

Resurrection Bay is a bay on the Kenai Peninsula of Alaska, United States. Its main settlement is Seward, located at the head of the bay. It received its name from Alexandr Baranov, who was forced to retreat into the bay during a bad storm in the Gulf of Alaska. When the storm settled it was Easter Sunday, so the bay and nearby Resurrection River were named in honor of it.

lorashank Seward, Alaska (Mile 0)

The tripod and historic Iditarod Trail monument is located along the shoreline of Resurrection Bay. This is the southernmost terminus for the historic Iditarod Trail. Thousands of people set off from here trying to realize their dreams of fortune. A paved segment of the historic trail follows the bay for one mile to the small boat harbor. ------------------------------------------------- I've shared photos from our trip to Alaska previously, but still have hundreds that I haven't shared. Hopefully, you'll enjoy a few more of them.
All of my photographs from Alaska were taken with a 5mp point and shoot camera. Please excuse the image quality. July 2007

  •   shezasphotos @lorashank I bought an OLYMPUS OMD e10. I also have the Olmypus pen series and will use the 2 camera interchangeably as I have 5 lenses . Love the fact that it has wi fi and 1:1 crop making it so easy for IGA. It's iser friendly but not a super pro camera - very affordable and more lightweight than other DSLRS 4w

Of loneliness and isolation
Before it turns into a Butterfly.
Embrace the time you have alone,
It will only make you stronger.
