Minutes Before Sunrise

I miss that period of my life where I didn’t need an alarm to wake me up at 5am nor do did I have to snatch my body back from the bed! That’s what I do these days to wake up early and have a moment of quiet and peace before reality strikes a few hours later.

Impromptu Poem 19/07/2017

I wander in but one form

without a truth and into the trees.

My eyes rise.

the blinding sunlight is stifled

by a mess of branches that

only leaves regret at my own

entanglement

with life, with minds, with hearts…

 

I keep walking

clad in a mosaic of shades.

With each step I take,

It gives me a new form –

but only of darkness.

 

It’s been a long time since I wrote poetry. One of the things I regret: not sticking to poetry. It’s been very therapeutic for me.

Picks from July 11th 2017

I was on my way to the beach around 5am and I took these photos. I kept their white balance as is because I like them that way except for the last two which I tweaked a bit.

I also shot a Tri-X400 roll at the same time but it’s not developed yet. It was just a test. I’m not sure that that film is suitable for sunrise photos. I tried to avoid direct light so I hope I’ll get a few good ones.
