My first five posts were of happy, fluffy clouds. Today is quite the opposite. I thought variety is the key to keeping anything fresh.

The long-awaited X-Files movie: I WANT TO BELIEVE opens tomorrow and I am so excited. So in connection with the return of Scully and Mulder I finally got to show you this picture. I thought it pretty much say: Beam Me Up.

I am going to post random pictures both from my archives and from the last few shooting sessions as I am busy with work right now. Don't you just hate it when real life gets in the way of blogging? Anyway, I will soon resume a new series, provided I find a good one.
Here's a little critter that's a regular in the wetlands a few blocks from where I live.

It was a short 15-minute drive to the river, but the little lady here fell asleep. Notice her little Barbie tackle box, how cute isn't it?

This is a very old photo I took some years ago. We were on the way to either Reno or Lake Tahoe one day and got hungry and decided to take the first exit ramp that had sign for food. Would you believe that this beautiful house was next to the diner? I simply love the wrap around balcony and the gingerbread design.

This is AB Building. It's facade is clad in driftwood that no doubt were collected from what washed up on shore. This is one of the more interesting buildings and one of the most photographed.

Built in 1898, the oldest operating hotel in Alaska was a two story hotel, moved in 1908 by horse and capsten to its present location. A third story and the world famous golden dome was also added at this time.Corrington's purchased the property in 1997 and spent more than one million dollars renovating the Crown Jewel of the Gold Rush. Now solid and up to code, each of the 31 rooms are dedicated to gold rush families and filled with their momentos and antiques.The first floor offers a 60 seat pub, 80 seat Victorian style restaurant, 30 seat outdoor patio and Southeast Alaska’s first microbrewery.

I have found that I have still some old materials that have never seen the light of day in this blog. It's time I thought they get their share of the limelight :). Anyway, here's one of the remarkable old buildings I found in Skagway. This small coastal town, the gateway to the Klondike, is filled with preserved buildings. Thought I'd start sharing them with you.
