The color photographs version of this post is HERE.<<link

This post is identical except most of the photos have been replaced by monochrome versions. Also, the word “monochrome” has been added where appropriate.

For them who didn’t read the previous monochrome post, I done do this to avoid mixing what are two different ways of presenting photographs. I aim to let each version shine on its own stage. Think of it as a nod to the days before color was invented . . .

This is the second (monochrome) post documenting our September 13, 2017, visit to Juneau, Alaska, a now even longer-delayed continuation of my documentation of our 2017 Alaska Cruise. Current and previous posts relating to this cruise are HERE<<link. The following introduction is the same as that of previous posts so that’s something else you can skip.

One more thing . . . there are fewer monochrome photos than color photos, so the posts are not exactly 1:1 comparable. In part, that’s because some of the color photos are duplicates taken with the Note II and there’s nothing gained by converting them to monochrome, and some of the photos were not all that interesting in Monochrome.

There’s a gallery at the end of each post and a SmugMug gallery HERE<<link. Photos in SmugMug can be viewed full-size. Note that the SmugMug gallery will eventually contain all the photos from Juneau; those from this (monochrome) post (Part 2) and those from previous (monochrome) Juneau posts.

You can click on the photos in the body of this post to see a larger-but-less-than-full-size-version. If there’s a panorama, I’ll link the full-size files but be warned . . . they’re typically huge. Huger than people have ever seen before. Don’t click on those links unless you’re enjoying a biggly Interweb connection. Also, if you have biggly Interweb but you’re reading this on a phone — which is sad; VERY SAD — I wouldn’t bother with the full-size photos because they are HUGE; huger than anyone else’s huge photos.

That post has color photos and rather than mix color and monochrome photos, I decided to duplicate the post with the monochrome versions of the photos. Think of it as a nod to the days before color was invented . . .

I’m writing this on the 28th of July, 2020 . . . my last post about our 2017 Alaska Cruise was exactly one year ago (HERE<<link) and covered the last of the Haines photos. Had I been aware of it, I would have tried to post on the anniversary of my last post . . . alas, there’s no way I’ll finish this in the next ninety minutes.

The Note 8’s main role is to document stuff . . . by taking photos.

Mind you, it’s also a phone but even though it’s our main (official) phone, we don’t get many calls.

Well, OK . . . these days we get more calls than usual. In fact, more calls than the total number of calls I received on that phone over the course of the last two years. 

May 9th

I’m sure you’ve seen it . . . you get an e-mail letting you know a given company is having a sale on an item or a 24-hour discount or a special limited time offer.

It’s usually something you actually researched or even bought in the past so you give it more than a cursory look . . . but ultimately blow the e-mail away.

No post linked today since this is the last post of Project 313. Three-hundred-thirteen posts . . . Three-hundred-thirteen photos . . . Three-hundred-thirteen cartoons . . . Three-hundred-fourteen doodles.

I understand a lot of people got bored with the whole concept and the effort; rest assured I don’t mind as I’m prone to similar reactions to various projects. To those who stuck with it, kudos on your fortitude and thank you for putting up with all the silliness, tediousness, and other nesses that currently escape me. 

And now, the photo:

I hope this captures the spirit of this last post. Thank you for reading along with me and thank you for all the likes and comments. 

You know, I often look back at times when I could knock out a short story with little to no effort. It’s something I hope to do again . . . soon.

Meanwhile, perhaps people will enjoy THIS bit of drama and pathos. 

And now, the photo:

Project 313 311

Sometimes, one has to dabble into the world of dramatic expression.

How did I do?

Normally, this being Sunday, I’d have a quick post and a link to something few will mind missing . . . but, if you like B&W photography, you might want to look at THIS post.

Lots of B&W goodness, if I do say so myself.

And now, the photo:

Project 313 310

Pretty bold, if I do say so myself . . . which I often have to. 

A part of me can’t wait for the opportunity to cultivate colorful flowers once we settle down. Another part of me remembers how much work they are.  I guess the part I’ll feed will win out.

If you (dear reader) are a car person, then THIS post is for you. If you are not a car person, the post is still for you . . . you can find out what the fuss is all about.

For the record, I’m not a car person . . . but they do make great subjects for my photography. 

And now, the photo:

Project 313 309

I struggled a bit with this shot of fireworks . . . but, ultimately, I think I done did it justice.
