Dancing in the Streets

Today they had early hours at the Magic Kingdom and as I walked up  Main Street I was entertained by a singing and dancing performance. The performers were riding on the street car and got off to perform when it stopped. Main Street USA, Magic Kingdom, Walt Disney World, Florida.

Ballet Lesson

Well, not really the lesson. Guess we should call this pre-lesson activity. I think this image allows the viewer to appreciate the energy and excitement that exists when children are allowed to enjoy themselves. February 2015.Children running before ballet lesson

There she blows . . . too close for comfort

Watching a pod of Humpback Whales feeding was an experience that is hard to forget especially when one whale comes close enough to capture this image of it blowing air and spray out its blow hole. June 2014.

Humpback Whales Surfacing

It is extremely exciting to watch a pod of Humpback Whales bubble netting. In this image we see four whales surfacing from a deep dive, their mouths closed holding captured fish in while water streams out the sides of their mouths. Image captured the end of June 2014.

Orca Whales Blowing

We saw a small pod of Orcas cruising the Alaskan Coast, end of June 2014. They were so graceful to watch as they traveled effortlessly through the water. I captured this image as a pair surfaced, blowing air out of their lungs, and sending a mist of water flying into the air. I believe that this is a mother with a young following her.

Crew of the Jean C. (Trawler in Alaska)

We were able to approach a couple of trawlers pulling in their seines and watch them bring in their catch of Salmon. Many of the boats are family operations and as you can see here, even the women go to sea when its time to fish. It was surprising to see how many women there were in the fishing fleet.Crew of the Jean C.
