Happy 5th Blogoversary

I’ve been running this blog for five years.

The anniversary was on 2nd September and, as usual, I forgot. But because it’s five years (half a decade!), I still wanted to acknowledge it.

Here’s a picture of sunrise:

That’s a roof window, tilted horizontally.

I went from using a Fujifilm compact to Canon DSLR, to only smartphone pics. One day, I shall pick up my camera again, only I don’t know when. I’m, sort of, not in charge of the timeline here.

The Commute

We’re right in the middle of winter, the season of short days and long nights–at least where I live. My working pattern means I get to see the rising and setting sun on my daily commute.

Sunrise photographed through the tram window, on the way to work, above. Sunset photographed from the tram window on the way home, below.

The tramline has some marvellous views in this section, inaccessible by any other means. It makes the sardine-like conditions of the rush hour much more pleasant.

New Year’s Sunrise

It has become a habit of mine to take a photo of sunrise on the first working day of the year on my way to work.

I’m not a morning person and therefore never take any pictures of sunrise, except this time of year when it days are so short.

The weather has been really awful lately, constant rain and more rain, conditions weren’t exactly the best for taking pictures. So this year’s is dated the third working day of the year, instead of first.
