A time to reflect
The great thing about being some place isolated early in the morning before sunrise is that you’re able to reflect on things. It’s hard not to. When you have the sounds and confusion of big city, your thoughts are concentrated on just making it through your environment. Yosemite at 5:50am gives you the chance to observe the beauty, and then let your mind wander. Now considering what you’re going through, this could be either good or bad. Unless you’re freezing your butt off, then you’re probably worried about that.
This particular morning was still. And not cold. With my real job, and then all my photography jobs and trying to be a family man, I haven’t had a whole lot of ‘personal time’ to do much of anything. In fact, it got so bad that my landlady ended up hiring a gardener to clean/clip/trim the outside of my house since it’s become so over grown and shaggy. It looks great now. I just fear she’s ready for me to move out and is getting the house ready for rent again.
Shot the engagement on Friday, then a wedding in the sun on Saturday, and another one last night. My right hand aches. I have an engagement on Wednesday and Sunday with a wedding in Santa Barbara on Saturday, and a possible newborn shot tomorrow. I’m blessed that I am busy, but I know that I need more rest, else it’ll be given to me, by choice or not.
