"Beautiful War"

I am on christmas holiday in Madison, WI, far far away from any mountain on the horizon. How I feel? Completely naked. You know as a photographer you are suppose to find the beauty in anything and everything, and I know that a lot of people love the pictures I take. I often tell my mom that anyone could take a picture like that, if they just had the opportunity. I think that is true. I have been here in Madison for more than a week now, and my camera still sits on the table at W's apartment. Untouched. Why? because I don't know what to take a picture of. The town? The lake? The cloudy sky? I realize how extremely lucky I am to be living in Alaska. While flying in over the midwest and Madison my stomach crunched. I looked down and wondered how it would go, how a mountain girl could possibly like this flat part of the world. There are beautiful sunsets here too, but the buildings get in the way, and W's apartment is far away from the lake, or just far enough. And W has been working and I have been at his work with him, all day, for more than a week now. So, I guess I haven't really created any photo opportunity. But I think it can grow on me, the city. I am from a city, a large city, so it shouldn't be too hard to get used to it again. And we haven't explored Wisconsin yet, and I am sure there are beautiful places. We just haven't had time to go there yet. We have until the beginning of January, when I go back to Alaska. We got a lot of things planned until then.

But, since I haven't taken any pictures yet, I will show you some pictures from Alaska. Also because I may or may not miss my Alaska.... Enjoy.
