Slow to rise

I slept in this morning. It’s not something I do very often, but after working yesterday and then staying up till after one o’clock to celebrate my birthday and the New Year, I was beat. As I lay there, working up the steam to get out of bed, I remembered a photograph I had taken while on vacation a few years ago. At the time I had no idea why I made the image; or how, or if, I would ever have a way to use it. Fortunately, I just went with my gut and made it.

So, here is another lesson learned… again. If you have the urge to make a photograph…make it! Even if you don’t understand why you need to do it at the time. Don’t worry about how, or if you will ever find a use for it; just make the picture. There might come a time when it will be just what you need to illustrate a point.

  1. The morning sun spilling through the blinds, the glowing bedpost, the tangle of sheets. The infrared feel of this image takes it to that realm of memory and imagination. Nice.
