When I first moved to Alaska I took a really nice camera with me, and I took some fun photos I would have never thought to take with a regular camera. In this photo I was more or less laying down in a field of wildflowers (some weeds) at the Talkeetna Airport, bees and everything.
As I continue to work through photos, this is a photo of a painting of a church, which I believe I saw in the lobby of the La Fonda hotel in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
I don’t know the origin of this “moon in a barrel” image, but I like it.
I don’t know the original source of this photo, it’s been passed around Facebook a lot, but it’s funny.
I reloaded Gimp with all of its custom special effects and in my copious spare time at night I’ve been working on a simulated sketch of yours truly (Alvin Alexander).

I don’t remember the origin of this photo, but here are two moose fighting in Palmer, Alaska.
I lived in Palmer when I first started going through the thyroid issues, and because of those issues I’d go for walks at any time during the day, 24 hours a day. One late night or early morning I went for a walk and came across a moose, but fortunately I saw it early and it was a non issue. He or she went on their way, and I went the other way.
Here’s a photo from Virginia Beach at sunrise in late May, 2019. I used a dark black and white filter when taking the photo, but everything else is natural.
I was going through old photos recently and found this “Bleeding Heart” drawing that I made on a Buddha Board back in February, 2015. FWIW, Buddha Boards seem to make good Christmas gifts. I got this one as a Christmas gift in 2014.
Here are two moose that I came across one day in Alaska.
