Doors- Ketchikan Alaska

Photograph of an Alaskan Door by Susan Sheldon NolenThis door says Alaska without any doubt. The wood around the door is old, but this door is maybe the most- ten years old. But the weather in Alaska certainly has played with the two pillars, one with paint peeling and other…well it’s clearly let’s make do. Any old post will do. Shove it into place and voila, the doorway is secure.

About susan sheldon

I am an explorer. It's taken me awhile to realise this. But I love capturing bits of our wonderful world with my camera, travelling through time and history, always returning to write, or paint what I've discovered. I use my Leica and my iPhone to capture images, and with those images I try to hold on to a feeling, a moment in our busy lives. Sometimes those moments bring me into the past, others into the studio to paint, or back to the old typewriter to try to use words to capture what the camera has done for me already. One of my goals in my blog is to have a space to take a breath away from our frantic world. I hope you enjoy your time here. It’s such a privilege to have readers.

    I wanted so badly to bring a totem pole home with me from Alaska, but they’re not very practical to tote around! I suppose I could have had it shipped, but then as with any big purchase, you start to think, “Well, do I really need this? Where will I put it?” And so on and so on…

  2. Carrie, I hear you! I saw some amazing stuff in the gift shops, but then thought, wow, who is going to dust this stuff!

I'd love to hear your thoughts!
