OK, so the idea of morning photos was easy to do while on vacation, not so easy at home. But I am determined. Of course, we leave Sunday for vacation, so I get an edge. This morning, taking an early walk to visit a yard sale, I remembered why I wanted to do this.
Morning photos are an idea that formed on my main blog, "view from the attic". It was an exercise, at first, to kick start the day creatively and practice photography. But in time, I realized that the discipline was teaching me more than how to set my camera, it was making me look at my world through the morning lens. To see the common little moments of the day as tiny works of art. Morning light is thin, soft, gentle, tentative. It lends itself to the quiet search for the moment that you will capture and hold for the rest of the day. And the accumulation of those moments, those days, in time, might be a light of its own.
