In the A.M.


I’m up early again today, although this time it wasn’t the light that woke me. I actually managed to beat the light by about half an hour. I woke up shortly after 4 a.m. and it was still fairly dark, although there was a hint that things would be getting brighter soon. The birds started singing soon after and by 4:30, things were getting quite light. I gave up trying to get back to sleep around 4:45 and was outside taking photos (why not?) by 4:50.

As you can see here, this one was taking at about 4:52 a.m. Pretty bright out, isn’t it! The street lamps were still on, but were superfluous by that point. I wasn’t the only person up and about, though. As I was taking a few more pictures, I was passed by a lone biker, as well as a group of three women cycling past and chatting amongst themselves.

Considering how warm it’s been and how warm it’s expected to be all week, I might not fight these early mornings. They seem like the perfect time to get up and out for a nice walk before it gets too warm. Too bad I’ll have to go on my own, since Pippo is still asleep — in my spot, no less!

  1. Great post! And I agree! Great time to get out & do what needs to be done is first thing in the mornings here in the Netherlands on a summer day! And why not, with the seemingly ever-present daylight πŸ™‚ Great photo of this clock & proof of just exactly how bright it is outside at that early hour!

  2. I waited until after 10 this morning to go get groceries and regretted waiting that late! Too hot by the time I walked back! If I’m up again tomorrow, maybe I’ll be there when AH opens. Of course, the downside is that they never seem to have much on the shelves until much later in the day.

    I did think that it would be good to have proof that not only was I up early, but it really was as light as I had been saying, thus the photo! πŸ™‚

    • I’d rather not wake up that early, though! It’s certainly not intentional! If shops were open then, I might enjoy it more. πŸ˜‰
