"A Life at Sea": My little photo essay in Alaska Magazine

Whew. Every summer, life in Kodiak, Alaska ramps up: My husband Marty and I run an oceanfront B&B and host about 100 tours on our boat in the form of wildlife viewing/photo trips. As the chief cook and bottle washer, I have great views for doing dishes). But I haven’t always cooked, scrubbed toilets, grown kale salads, and photographed for a living. I’ll explain.

The July/August issue of Alaska Magazine printed a photo essay of my work, showing the beauty that abounds on Kodiak Island. The photo essay, called “A Life at Sea,” is a play on words you see, because I once worked as an Able-Bodied Seaman and later as a 3rd Mate (Merchant Marine Officer) aboard research ships and tugs.

Even then, my camera helped me describe to friends and family back home what it was like to spend 6 to 8 months at sea. I hope you enjoy it as much as I loved taking the photos.Puffins, horned puffins, photograph, photo, photography, Alaska Magazine, Alaska, ocean, sea otter, starfish, sea lion, Steller sea lion, pigeon guillemot, seabirds, sea, Marion Owen
