Pull on these

‎There's nothing quite like that moment when the early morning sun paints an otherwise unremarkable piece of furniture with its low-angled, golden-hour-hued light. The effect will disappear if you take even a minute or two to fetch a so-called real camera. So you pull the smartphone from your pocket and hope it's good enough.

On this morning, I hoped it was. Because the sun doesn't always cooperate when you happen to be in that particular spot. And capturing moments that stick with you is little more than an exercise in learning to stop and appreciate them as they happen.

Key words: Stop and appreciate.

Your turn: What does your quiet morning look like? Got any words - or even better, a picture - to illustrate?

Wow, I just shot a few photos this morning before I left the house! I'll be posting it tomorrow, and I'll pop the link over here. Great minds thinking together on this! Ha! Ha! I was truly in a sunny morning mood today, but the sun clearly had other ideas. You'll see tomorrow!

quiet mornings...... sadly i'm one of those folk who don't really get into gear until 9am, which means that the "quiet " aspect of our topic has long gone!
