Sunrise



What it boils down to, I guess, is that I want to take pictures that are poems. This poem is a city on a hill, just before the people in it have begun to stir.

Love the conflation of the books and the sunrise.

I'm enjoying these photos and your conversation about them.

Thanks, Brian. The moment evaporated almost as soon as it arrived.

Jean, that’s good to hear. I’m still just feeling my way, and the camera is clumsy in my hands.

Ein Sonnenaufgang auf Büchern..gewärmt werden sie außen, innen sicher mit viel Wärme einst geschrieben..
Ein wunderbares Foto, ja, das hat was...

al, Rachel

Rachel, I can also imagine the books being the source of the light and warmth....

You know, William, you may have found another real talent here! A beautiful and evocative shot.

Thanks, Katie. Who knows, but more likely it’s beginner’s luck. Hmm. So maybe the trick is to keep beginning....
