The SmugMug.com photo-sharing service is featured here for the first time, through the galleries of John Gome. John is a retired police officer/firefighter who has lived in Alaska for the past thirty eight years. That accounts for his special interest, and his presence taking pictures when the Anchorage airport emergency services were doing training exercises for fire & ice rescue. If we ever achieve our ambition to visit Alaska, should we fly into Anchorage we will feel more comfortable in the knowledge that these guys will be on duty should anything untoward occur!

John has eleven galleries ranging from these journalism galleries, through animals. to one of our own favorites featuring images of a spectacular aurora borealis display.

Oh, what a day-to-day business life is.
