I set the alarm for 4:30 AM, and then was awake from 12:30 on, waiting for the alarm to go off. Of course I’d fallen asleep and was startled when it did go off, but such are the trials and tribulations of a photographer in search of a nice sunrise. Not only a chance to shoot in a fun place with friends, but to go to a new breakfast spot with the most amazing looking waffles ever! At the last minute I let myself be talked into a frittata instead, and now I have to go back for the banana maple pecan waffles that I failed to choose this morning. And the breakfast possibilities distracted me for the last half of the shoot since I was starving. Or I could just win the lottery and move to Safety Harbor altogether, but then I’d be in range of those waffles every morning and that would be dangerous.
Fun with friends in Florida, where you can get your activity in early, before it gets too hot, and then nap away the afternoon while the sun blazes away. Or while the thunder rumbles, even if it doesn’t rain. Makes for a perfect day.
