Title • Photo Friday: Morning

I took this shot on Friday morning, a couple of hours after seeing this week’s theme, but didn’t really expect that it would work out. I’d just got to work, was still half asleep (despite having driven 32 miles), I rushed the shot, and, worst of all, the exposure was 1/10sec handheld (I didn’t have time to reset the ISO and take some more). So until today I didn’t even bother looking at it as I really thought that there was no way it would work.

But I think it’s ok, and it just about sums up mornings for me, so I thought I’d use it. Mornings, for the most part, are not my favourite time of day, and until I’ve had at least two or three cups of coffee I don’t even feel human.

When I asked for suggestions for this theme Myla suggested that I should take a shot of our daughters, asleep in the morning, but given that they invariably wake at horrible times of the day – the youngest at around six, the next youngest at seven, and the other two not long after – the only way I can get shots of them asleep is if I take them before I go to bed. So, last night I did take a shot of our youngest (13 month) daughter, and did think about using it for this theme, but a sleeping child at one in the morning didn’t strike me as all that relevant ;-)
