The Start And End of My Day

On Tuesday evening, I missed a great sunset. I knew it was one of those beautiful ones - with pink and red hues - I could tell because of the reflection on my neighbor's house. But I was busy making dinner, or something, so I didn't go out and see it for myself.

I found out what I missed when my friend, Kellie, posted a picture of it on Instagram. I kicked myself (mentally, of course) that I didn't take the time to enjoy it in person.

Then Wednesday morning, I slept in while my husband took our son to early jazz band rehearsal. I received a text, "wow, it was an amazing sunrise this morning". Dang, another lost opportunity.

This morning, when I saw the tinges of pink and red along our bathroom block window panes (they are privacy blocks, so you can't make out any details), I grabbed my camera and went outside - just to the driveway - because I wasn't going to miss out on this morning's show.

I wasn't disappointed.

Via my iPhone:
I Missed a Great Sunrise Yesterday - Got Today's

With the big camera, which captured the truer colors, along with more of the depth and variation:
Morning Glory

It was a great start of my day.

The end of my day was just as nice - some more night street shots from our little downtown area.

Aroma Cafe

The display at Ten Thousand Villages - a great shop that features Fair Trade, hand made products from around the world.
Happy White and Red

It was warm enough over the weekend to warrant outdoor dining. Not so much now, but with the twinkle lights, who cares....

In the summer, this alley is filled with patrons, live music and great eats. The lights stay up all year round.
The Blind Pig

I hope you had a great start and end to your day, too. Now, back to Christmas cards and all that stuff.....

It's always a treat to capture those gorgeous sunrises/sunsets. I like your street shots with the lights:-)
