Today was another wonderfully long day.

I filed another 20 images with Reuters, but I'm only gonna post a few of those here. Instead, I'm going to use this space to share the images that don't have as much traditional journalistic value, but are meaningful to me because I feel (or hope at least) that they express some of the character and the energy that surrounds the sport of dog mushing.

I'm also going to post more than I usually do because I took so many dang images today--its only right. Or because this is my blog and I can do what I want to.

And then I'm going to go to bed.

Iditarod--day one

Iditarod

After a full day of photographing and editing (thousands of images) taken of the ceremonial start of the Iditarod in downtown Anchorage--I'm sacked. Usually I'd shoot one day and edit later, but I'm doing these images for Reuters News Pictures and had to get the best out today after the race. I gave them 20 photos.

I'm going to share 14 images here...some of the ones I gave to Reuters, and others that have less journalistic value but more aesthetic value...mostly dog photos because they have way better expressions than humans. The dogs are pretty much 10 times more excited about the Iditarod than the people are...silly people! Wish I had more energy to talk about today...but I'm going...to sleep.

Tomorrow's another full day of dogs--
check in again for more photos later.
