Catching the Light

Well, I've been slacking off on the sunrise thing again ... more like sleeping.
But just for you, here is something I prepared earlier.

By prepared earlier, I mean took the other week.

As always it was a nice way to spend the early hours of my morning.

I tell you what, I'm not sure about this always working thing. It really messes with my sunrise and sunset photo taking, not to mention taking anything any other time of day. But I am glad to have the work!

I do think however, that I could do with finding some new spots to visit. Shake it up a bit.

The best part about this trip down to the Esplanade was that the net fishermen had snuck out to see what they could get.

Oh, and there was a pretty sky, of cause.

I love watching things like this. Net fishing isn't something I'd seen until I came north. Now I hope to see it most times I head to the water front, but it isn't that common.

This fella had his sea gull groupies hanging around, waiting for any tidbits that didn't meet the fisherman's needs.

This, I recall, was a lovely morning. Cool enough to be refreshing.
Summer has certainly arrived over the last week or so though. Warm to hot from morning through to night and back to morning. Humidity is making a run for it and it tries to build for rain or storms most days. Another reason the sunsets aren't really happening around here.

We are supposed to be in for a good wet season over Summer. Fingers crossed, although I am sure we will all be whinging about the constant rain when it arrives. There is also supposed to be a average to higher than average cyclone season. Now that will bring in the rain. For a place with the line 'city in a garden' on the sign, the 'garden' could do with some watering. The streets and yards around town are certainly browning off. I know ours is just a bit crunchy underfoot.

 So I am on the count down until I see family. It will be crazy, I am sure, but always worth it. So excited! I have noticed this year that I have become a lot more settled, not so up and down, about seeing family. Not that I still don't miss seeing them all the time and being there for events, it has just become easier to deal with. I still have my moments. I just try and enjoy what I can get.

 Just like I enjoy moments like this, watching a man and his golden net trying to catch the light ... I mean fish.

And try to enjoy the little things around me. Although recently I have been getting bogged down in daily life.

Unfortunately, much to this fellows relief, I ran out of battery in my camera. Mind you I had been taking photos for a while.

 How is the weather looking at your place?
Have you seen anything interesting lately?

Enjoy the rest of your week!
