I might not have the skill of a gold miner. I might not have the granite jaw of a Klondike old-timer. But I wouldn't mind picking up some gold nuggets here in the Yukon - if I could only find them.
This shot was taken in a shop window in Dawson City - looking in from the outside. I had a smile on my face because of the three signs against the glass pane, so of course I had to wander up for a closer look.
That's when I noticed the soft reflection in the glass, so I did what comes naturally. I took the photograph.
On reflection, though, I think I have really found pure 22-karat gold here in this frontier territory that I love so much. The Yukon keeps drawing me back like an international magnet. It enriches my soul.
That's gold enough for me.
