So I will venture out today, camera gear in hand and see what I can shoot!

The Natives came in about last night around 10 PM with a catch of walrus they had caught. The meat and blubber gets divvied up amongst the natives. The tusks on that that thing were massive, probably 2 feet long. I only saw photos of it, but then I was preparing to saw logs!

    Don't be a stranger around here, now. We want to hear about your trip and see some photos. You should see a shortening of the daylight hours these days.

    There has not been much opportunity to shoot here. Barrow is not the most picturesque of towns. In fact, at least on the outside, the houses look like they would fit right in in downtown Detroit. With the coming of the cold(er) weather will come the critters; caribou and polar bear. I am hoping to be able to get close enough to get some photos. All I have for "big guns" is my 300mm f/2.8 and TC-300, which should be able to get me close enough. When it starts getting dark (only a few hours of twilight now), I am hoping to may be get some Aurora Borealis stuff.

    This is my lab, however, small but well equipped! I am in the process of validating the microbiology analyzer, a process that will run for 20 consecutive days. I am starting my 5th week here and have yet to have a single day off, but there honestly is not a lot much else to do in Barrow but work and go to Church. Our little Catholic Church does have the distinction of being the northernmost Catholic Church IN THE WORLD though!

    Its a shame you missed the walrus and the natives , that sounds like interesting subject material to me .. if you can swing it, even if Barrow looks like Detroit ., it has meaning and 'story' at least.
