Holly Furman, Anchorage (Clark James Mishler)

12:45 PM, November 29, 2011.  Assistant to the Director of the recent film, Frozen Ground, Holly Furman is caught in the best light of the day.  A strong back light reflects off the Atwood building in downtown Anchorage and streams through my north window as Holly’s face is illuminated by diffused sunlight from the south windows.  The light lasted only a few minutes,- just long enough to capture Holly’s beauty.

Urban snowboarder, Guss Engle, performs a Wallie Nose Glide Pretzel on the 5th Avenue Hill across from Elderberry Park, downtown Anchorage (Clark James Mishler)

5:30 PM, November 14, 2011.  Urban snowboarder, Guss Engle, performs a “Wallie Nose- glide Pretzel” on the 5th Avenue Hill across from Elderberry Park, in downtown Anchorage.  I was fortunate that I happened upon these thrill seekers who had set up a small engine and a pull line to gain enough speed to jump up the face of a six foot cement wall and then slide down the edge, often crashing in heap.  I was happy they allowed me to set up my light and grab a few action images.  These guys are nutz.
