A Few Mosquitoes In Alaska

The time we spend in places—how long before their character, their spirit and secrets, are revealed? I have photographed the indescribable we call The Southwest in four separate years and am certain beyond any doubt that I’ve barely invested the equivalent of a few seconds there. Overwhelming, immense Alaska is, as I expected, no different, though I will measure my time there by another indicator.

If I can conjure
The Bear, the Sun, the Distance,
That will be enough.

The coastal areas of Alaska, for me, quickly became redundant, especially on the foggy, rainy days. I can’t imagine living there full-time. Of course, some say that about my neighborhood, too.
