04/08/2005: "Portrait of Cameron"

I had dinner at my friend Maren's house tonight, she just got back from a South African safari and wanted to tell me all about it. It sounds like she had such an adventure and she went by herself which I totally admire.

While I was there I saw a painting I had done that I had kind of forgotten about, of her dog Cameron in front of a glacier. I had never taken a photograph of it so I decided to since I had my camera with me. The lighting was really dark when I took it and also I'd had several glasses of wine so it's a bit shakey blurry, plus the blue in the image is actually more of a glacier blue, but you get the idea.

I'm taking guesses from people as to what they think the 2nd image is. Any ideas???

Yes, you Harri and Stella should move to Juneau!

As for the image in #3, NOPE! Ha ha, it's a tough one eh?

It looks like meat so it's probably not.
But I'll say dog food none the less.

Nice try but no...

I'll give a hint. It's *not* meat of any kind.

pickled brains?

Would brains count as meat?


but no Howard. Now excuse me while I go and throw up!

Some sort of bizarre Alaskan fungus popping up? A vegetable or other plantlife shot a la Edward WEston?

You're getting closer Holly.

Two more hints:

1. It's part of a common plant (not just in Alaska).

2. It's poisonous to cats if ingested.

This is nice work. Is it true that fur is difficult to do?!
