Molly at Close to Home has begun offering a weekly photography prompt: The Way I See It. This week's assignment is Morning.
I have a love/hate relationship with mornings. I love being up, but getting up is ridiculously difficult for me. I love getting up long before the crowd, and yet I often sleep until the first person stumbles through my room on their way to the shower. If I get up early, coffee is a necessary element, preferably a hot, fresh Americano. Fortunately when I stumble down the stairs in the morning, there is almost always espresso waiting for me. This is one of the benefits of having a husband who wakes pre-dawn.
If coffee is my first morning thought, light is a close second. Once the sun comes up over the hill and heads towards our windows, the sun and shadows wake me up to the beauty around me. I love the morning light.
I am never ready to eat in the morning, but eat we must. On special days popovers are a favorite breakfast, and when they are filling the house with their buttery fragrance, even I can get hungry.
I really do love morning, it just takes a cup of coffee to remind me of that fact each and every morning.
Love to take pictures? Next week's prompt is home. Join the fun at Close to Home.
