DAY6 Simonstown Harbour, Cape Town
Its a later start to my working day this morning, only need to be there by 9am, so can venture a little further from home, do my sunrise clocking and still get to work on time. I wake knowing its going to be Simonstown Harbour this morning
Now enjoying the stealth walk to my dark car in the dark mornings, well after the now usual head talking to I have to give myself to get outta bed and on with it...
passing kids and parents on bikes with headlights, out early along the common, smiling at the family and their ducklings starting their weekend in splendid style
I set off over a favourite drive - Glencairn Carriage Way, in a hope and glimmer of a mornings capture. never quite sure if I will succeed each morning, in finding a view of interest or a stream of light enough to expose enough to see something in the grey. but its part of the challenge I enjoy. to make something that sometimes appears as nothing and feeling that moment when the picture I want appears for me momentarily to cash in stone
The birds are all blurred this morning, flying so fast past the masts, they are not possible to stop in mid air for them to appear as they are - feathered form in flight from dawn
the docks are quiet, only lights on here and there.
my heart is at home out here on a roam, feeling a peace that settles and calms...
