    Default Northern Exposure - Holling's Bar (5 IMG)

    I watched the TV series Northern Exposure with quite a bit of enjoyment. It was a situation comedy that was started back in 1990 and took place in the fictional town of Cicely, Alaska. Actually, most of the outdoor scenes of the town were filmed in Roslyn, Washington, so the buildings pictured in the TV series actually exist today. This is the building that was used as Holling's bar, a central meeting place for the townspeople. An old polaroid of some of the Northern Exposure cast members is tacked inside the display cabinet on the side of the building near the front door:



















    I was shooting early in the morning to avoid street traffic. I did not stay until later in the day to enter the bar after it opened as this was just a quick side trip from where I was camped in Yellowstone, NP. The above images were captured with the E-3 and DZ 14-35mm lens.
    Good shooting,

    Nice shooting EB, I loved the show Northern Exposure, and it slightly twisted neurotic people. Wish they'd replace reality TV with re-runs of it.

    I loved that show as well. Those are really nice shots of the building.

    Thank you. It was a good series. Actually, I've given up on TV entirely. Haven't watched any for several years. I buy whatever movies or series I want on DVD and that's the only use my TV set gets now. The internet provides all my news.
    Good shooting,

    Amen to that. It was a great show, and the slightly neurotic people reminded me of all my friends. Great shots E B, and thanks for the story behind them.

    Thank you.

    Your memory is good. I didn't post this series of images before, but I did post another Northern Exposure collection of images that included a picture of the doctor's office and Roselyn's Cafe with the camel painted on the side of it and one image of The Brick. You can see that series here if you're interested in revisiting it.

    Wasn't a big fan of the show, though I did watch it, but these shots are nice. For some reason, I really like the one of the doors.
