The world is wonderfully photogenic from now until winter comes. Barring bad luck or unfortunate weather, I have more pictures waiting for my attention on my drives and chips than time to process them. Tonight, it’s a blue moon.
I don’t know if I will be able to get a clear shot through the canopy of trees … or if it will be clear enough to shoot at all, but I’m going to try. Meanwhile, though … the weather has been wonderful all week. Amazing. Perfect. Bright, beautiful, warm with just that hint of Autumn around the corner.
This was one of the mornings where I had a camera in hand before my first cup of coffee. It’s a little complicated shooting garden flowers and drinking coffee at the same time. Sooner or later, you have to put the cup down somewhere and use two hands.
Coffee is more than my morning beverage. It’s a ritual, the substance I shamelessly abuse. The smell of coffee brewing calls to me, luring me from wherever I may be to the kitchen. I have my personal cups. With fitted lids. I got tired of replacing keyboards. Now, everything I drink from, coffee or otherwise, has a lid.\
It has saved me, my computers and my clothing.
Haven’t lost a keyboard in an entire year. It’s a personal best.
The morning light issues called me more insistently than coffee. First to the deck, then down my brand new steps to the garden.
I love the feel of the old wood deck under my feet and will happily risk splinters for the sensual pleasure of that old wood. And I love my new steps!
Summer is drawing to its end. 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. This was a very good day. Maybe tomorrow will be a good day too.
