I’m going to keep this short: if you’ve never been to Hawaii, go. All the good things you’ve ever heard about it are true. Here’s proof.
It was a beautiful summer in Southeast Alaska!
To show you just how beautiful it was, here are some random photos taken in Juneau and Haines this year. We had a ton of sunshine, warm weather, and awesome sunsets. There were a few rainy days in there too, of course. We are in a rainforest, after all.
I attended this year’s Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival and WOW. People everywhere. 75,000 – 100,000 to be somewhat exact. Amazing to see 2x to 3x the population of Juneau all in one place. The people-watching opportunities were equally amazing – for example, I saw a hula-hooping unicorn, a blue man, and a panda bear. And I hadn’t even had anything to drink. Proof of the blue man can be seen below.
The weather was awesome and my burned shoulders are evidence of that. 90 degrees every day, sunshine, and a nice breeze in the evening.
There were a ton of great bands playing, but I won’t go into too much detail here. I’ve written reviews of the three days at Coachella over on the website for CTRL-ALT-Juneau, my radio show (which you should listen to if you like any of the bands that played at Coachella!). Suffice to say it was a great music festival – enjoy the photos!
December 30th, New Year’s Eve, and New Year’s 2009 were spent in Seattle, WA, wandering around and enjoying the last little bit of my holiday break before heading back home to Juneau. Seattle is an awesome place for street photography and the Public Market Center at Pike Place is always full of color, patterns, and interesting people. It was definitely a great place to punctuate 2009 and usher in 2010!
