From the Archives: Haiku and a Picture

I took this photo with a disposable Kodak camera from inside a bunker in Dutch Harbor, Alaska. Many bunkers like this one were constructed throughout the Aleutian Islands to help fortify U.S. territory against advancing Japanese forces during World War 2.  The Aleutian campaign lasted from June 1942 – August 1943.

  1. Thank you for the feedback and for your continued support. There is indeed a very haunting quality about that place. It was serene and eerie at the same time. I’d like to visit once more, but this time I’d take a quality camera with me.
