Under the canopy of lush green leaves, we can find solace from the din of a chaotic urban decay. Here, pollution is not apparent. The songs of the birds are melodies that seem to clear the mind. The breeze that cools the warmth from the heat of the sun is a welcome relief. To rest under these trees is not just for the body but for the mind as well.
“Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer’s day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time.” ~John Lubbock
The blue hour happens within a short time frame. If you want to take photos of this particular setting, you have to prep beforehand so that everything you need are within easy reach.
It is during this time that people go home to rest (in the normal world without graveyard shift at work), when everything is supposed to slow down. It is this time when even the birds look for shelter to settle for the night.
These dinosaurs that seem to freely roam a resort we went to (several years ago) is like a dinotopia come alive to dino-geeks. For me, these are interesting things to take photos of because they won’t be able to run after me. ♀️
Early morning light from the sun, here we are the university church where my eldest daughter studies. It is a rare day indeed that we are up and about before sunrise, and on a Sunday at that.
Do you love mornings? I do! I wake up early to prepare the things needed for the day. I love waking up to the sound of chirping birds outside our windows. I like how the early morning rays play through the screen at the back part of the house where we can see the sun rise. Don’t you just love puttering in the house when everyone is still asleep?
