early light

My favorite thing is to go where I've never been.
~Diane Arbus

Even on days off, J. and I still wake up early out of habit.  Deciding to be near water this morning was wonderful for a photo wandering.

  3. This quote is one of my favourites ever, that I keep in mind in my head all the time. Lovely tones in the pictures. As always.

  4. Love love the violet tones in the sky-water blend. It reminds me of a colour, Helitrope (I loved the name) that I used on an art project when I was 12. We enamelled copper. I can still see the heliptrope melting and melding into a luxurious thick mass of deep, sensuous colour. Thank you for triggering the memory for me! Lots of the depth and variation I remember in the enamel just seems to be in your sky-sea.

  5. there is nothing quite like an early morning light, especially if you're out on a "hunt" with your camera :)
