I give Melissa and her friends Beth and Jade the credit for my trip to Kodiak in September. They contacted me and asked what it would take to get me up there again. I jumped at the chance and started working Kodiak into the schedule for The Big Blue Bus Tour. We even looked into putting the bus and the ferry and taking it to the island with us, but that turned out to be cost prohibitive. Its not cheap to put a bus on a ferry. Instead we flew down and had a great time reuniting with friends and visiting old haunts. Thanks Melissa, I’m so grateful for the opportunity to photograph your family!
