Winter sunrise at the beach

I sleep too much, and poorly. I suspect the second thing is a result of the first, so I've resolved to try getting up earlier, since going to bed later isn't really an option as it would disturb my wife and baby daughter too much. And so! Up before dawn, although since it's winter that's not saying much; the sun doesn't rise until about half past 8. Still, it's nice to be up earlier than usual, and especially nice to be out by the sea in the fresh cold morning air. Pakefield beach isn't very far - for future morning »

OCOLOY Week 31

Another busy week, alas not photographically: deadlines are looming at work which has left me little time or energy for taking pictures. I have, however, been spending a lot of time thinking about meaning. What do I want to say with my pictures? I feel like I'm approaching Step 4 in Andy Ilachinski's Eightfold Path Toward Self-Discovery, but it's a long hard climb to reach it. I want more out of my pictures now – I want to say something, but ... I don't know what. I enjoy making pictures, but I don't really know why I like the pictures I do. »
