“Your life is an occasion. Rise to it.”
― Suzanne Weyn
Sometimes you have to catch the morning at just the right moment in order to get the best of it. We had a period of sunlight amidst the grey that lasted all of two minutes and completely changed the outlook in the garden – but only briefly!
I had aimed to be awake for around half five this morning in order to see whether the sun made an appearance and I was able to catch the tail end of the transit of venus. It didn’t happen. Well, the transit did, but the sun didn’t. I spent about half an hour last night watching the live NASA broadcast until it crashed due to heavy traffic – they boasted it would be the first transit ever live blogged. Wishful thinking!
So it isn’t quite roses this morning – but the raindrops are there so the title is half true! I think I managed to shoot at the right moment as until now the sun didn’t make another appearance and I would have ended up with some moody grey shots to blog about – which can possibly work well sometimes I admit!
Starting the week on a Wednesday seems to work quite well. Everybody I have had meetings with today is in good spirits and well refreshed after the extended time off. Those that had to work twice as hard to deal with more customers/traffic and so on are not quite so happy but all in all the mood is good.
I think it’s a bit like snow days – the first one is great but when it gets to the third or fourth, you start wondering if you can get away with starting work early. (Which I managed to do yesterday evening!)
Anyway, that concludes Wednesday and all it brought with it! I haven’t even photographed Still Life this week – which is absolutely unheard of! With an alleged Summer arriving there will hopefully be a bit more of the outdoor world to showcase!
