Slipping the camera out of my pocket, I fire it up and compose the shot. Click! Not a good shot. I click and compose again, and again, and again. I fiddle with the settings, still can't get the shot I want! I'm in a learning curve with this camera. My other camera, my faithful sidekick, is a full size DSLR with all the bells and whistles. Unfortunately, being inconspicuous is not an option with this camera hence the point-and-shoot. Finally . . . a good shot!
There is something about walking around a small town while sunrise slowly makes it debut. A peaceful stillness surrounds you as you walk and watch the sunrise chase out the shadows with light. But I am not alone. Other early morning diehards join me in this special time before their day explodes into traffic jams, appointments, meetings, errands to run and all the other bits and pieces of our busy lives. Enjoying this extra bit of peace and quiet not only helps me move smoothly into my day, but it keeps my 50-something body in shape.
