Len Dobrucki's Photographic Journeys

20,000 tried… only a few survived!

… and I was one of the survivors! (I have a t-shirt to prove it). Yes, I made a photo for every one of the 52 weeks of the #dogwood52 photo challenge. It’s been one of the longest projects, work… Continue Reading →

Strange Happenings

When I was on my Arctic Expedition cruise in August, one night I was laying in bed, reading, when I started feeling a strange vibration. At first I thought it was from the ship’s engines, but it seemed too repetitive…. Continue Reading →

Dog Days (The next 10 weeks)

The expression “dog days” refers to the hot, sultry days of summer and with the rising, at sunrise, of Orion’s dog, the dog star Sirius. Well, that’s a nice scientific explanation, but to me, it means just plain “lazy”. Remember… Continue Reading →

Kangerlussuaq (Day 12) – final

We left the ship for the last time at 8:30 this morning and on shore in Kangerlussuaq, which was a US airbase during the cold war, we boarded Mercedes Unimog all terrain trucks. It was a very bumpy ride up… Continue Reading →

Itilleq, Greenland (Day 11)

This morning there was a AC Q&A panel meeting with much talk about the conditions of the Inuit – political, social and economic. Seems like the answer would be more and better education, which is expensive because of the large… Continue Reading →

Ilulissat, Greenland (Day 10)

This morning, we had a very interesting session about “Intergenerational Connections”, hosted by 87 year old Sally. The young people were very much into this, and I spent about half an hour holding 3 ½ month old baby Jane. In… Continue Reading →

Uummannaq, Greenland (Day 9)

This morning, we landed for a short visit to an ancient cemetery at Qilakitoq. Then, back at the ship, we had our polar dip, but it wasn’t too cold… about 5ᵒC. Spent the afternoon in the town of Uummannaq, Greenland… Continue Reading →

Karrat Fiord, Greenland (Day 8)

We lost another hour overnight, so now we’re in Greenland time. We entered Karrat Fjord, Greenland and the icebergs were spectacular. Other than birds, we haven’t seen much wildlife on this trip. Only one polar bear at a distance. I… Continue Reading →

Day 6 and Day 7 on the Ocean Endeavor

We went into the 3rd time-zone last night; 1 more to go. This was a quiet day, and I was very tired. These AC expeditions are not relaxing vacations, although I’ve been using the hot-tub almost every evening. I’ve also… Continue Reading →

Ice Cappuccino in the Arctic (Day 5)

Walter and I walked around Pond Inlet together, visiting the Parks Canada office, library and town hall. Again, I talked to many people – teens and adults, and of course, made lots of photos. I visited the Northern Store, which… Continue Reading →
