Anyone who knows how I feel about coffee will understand that this is no small thing. The smell of coffee brewing is like a siren’s call to me, luring me from anywhere in the house to the machine in the kitchen. I have special cups with lids because in addition to being a bit of a geek (okay, more than a bit), I’m a klutz and inclined to knock over cups of coffee. I got tired of replacing keyboards. Now, everything I drink from, coffee or otherwise, has a lid.
Haven’t lost a keyboard since I got my cups. But I digress.
The morning light issues a siren’s call and this morning, the light beckoned more strongly than coffee. I grabbed the camera and started shooting. First inside and then, the sunshine lured me onto the back deck … barefoot … because I didn’t want to lose the light while putting on my shoes.
You can tell that Fall really is here because the wooden deck was cold and my feet complained. I told them to shut up, so they cramped, reminding me that yelling at body parts rarely has the desired effect. It did not, however, stop me from taking pictures. If I can’t order the recalcitrant pieces of me to do as I want, I can ignore them … for a while, anyway.
Autumn is fleeting. I hate to waste any of it. If I could, I’d be out with the camera from first light until exhaustion or dark, whichever came first. Sadly, I’m not young. My stamina comes in spurts that don’t last more than a couple of hours at best.
I try to make good use of my short windows of opportunity. This morning yielded some pretty images and tomorrow is another day.
