I was awakened early yesterday morning. It was still dark o’clock as I wandered outside to feed the cats. The sun was still an hour from rising, but there were some interesting clouds resting on the horizon.
I came back inside to work on yesterdays post. As I did and I listened to my own words about accepting what you are given. All the while thinking of the pending sunrise. I finished my post and grabbed Kon and tripod headed back out to greet the sunrise. It was warming and forming nicely and I quickly saw that while I had a great background, I had nothing for foreground. I set up the pod and went to self timer mode and was busy trying to frame myself in the foreground.
I had misplaced myself in three exposures and was behind the camera trying to calculate where I should be placing my silhouette. One of my curious cats hopped up on the fence as if to say how about if I sit right here Mr DeMille, and then I will slowly walk back and forth across the top of the fence. How will that work for you?
Ah, the pleasure of taking what you are given. ††† en theos ††† jim work
