Are you taking pictures of dead fish?
Yes. Yes I am.
I am fascinated by the carnage that litters the Alaskan streamsides and can only imagine what it will look like in a month. The imperative that exists within these fish, to swim hundreds of miles to their birthplaces, to do their thing and then call it a life, amazes me. To see the swimming zombies, spent and deteriorating, flesh falling from their bones, but still fighting the currents to perpetuate their species, humbles me.
Do I have such courage, such commitment, such ragged nobility within me?
Mike, you're weird.
Yes. Perhaps I am. But then you probably don't see them as I do.
Or do you?
