 Portage Glacier Highway : Placer Creek : Alaska

I arrived in Anchorage Alaska last night …….. and my luggage had been stolen ……. depressing ……. it was scanned showing it on the conveyor and delivered to pick up 5 ……. someone had taken it from the belt but it was not me …… and it was not the Delta chap who was horrified on my behalf ……… totally depressing ……..

I of course had all my cameras with me in my cabin bags so I could still shoot …….. This is the first rule of photojournalism in my book : Number 1 : No cameras in the hold EVER. …….. but I have lighting gear and other photographic odds and ends in the hold bags …….

And I have other important stuff including spare socks and undies and a pile of warm things ………. I was rapidly thinking about all the gear lost ……. would it seriously effect this shoot bla bla ……… and I did think I’m gonna be seriously cold ….. unless i start really seriously shopping pretty fast ……

Luckily who ever had taken the bags …… either lost their nerve at the last moment ….. or came over all good and remorseful …… or at least realized their mistake maybe ? ……. or I suspect most probably realized it was mostly a pile of my old thermals and thought I am not touching this stuff whatever happens !!! hehehehe……. Either way they just left my bags out in the road …… And I think they took nothing ……. Mighty policing work by Anchorage International Airports finest officers located the bags out on the road …… Then rapidly reunited me with my missing bags ……. so the panic was over.

Just as well really because by the time I am stepping out of my vehicle today as the light was fading on the Portage Glacier Highway ……. I was seriously in need of my thermal undies I can tell you ……….. hehehehehe...... :-)))))
