Fantastic Friday Morning

One of my neighbors always says this kind of phrase before we part in the morning starting from a magnificent Monday to fantastic Friday and she was out taking a picture of the sunrise also. The first time she saw me out there was late at night while I was out photographing the moon, she drove home and saw me standing there by the road with my camera mounted on a tripod, probably thought weird. The next time was when I was photographing the sunrise, she wanted to photograph me taking a picture of the sunrise but was in a hurry and didn’t have time. Golden hour is very pretty but it’s a rush hour for most of us, I had to rush this morning to get to work on time.

This is what the house on the right hand side looks like.  I think there is an ethical issue when taking a picture of someone’s home.  Perhaps it’s all in the intent, as in this case I feel that it’s okay. I’m on a public property to do this and if I’m on their property then it wouldn’t be right without asking permission first.  Also if I had a zoom lens and intented to photograph the inside of their house and what they are doing, then it’s definitely unethical.

Last night, the darkness wrapped around the house, and the bright lights still shine.

  1. It looks to me that this house doesn’t seems to fit in the rest of subdivision. I meant the style of the house. Are all of these homes on your subdivision customs build? I like the night photo of the house.

    • Hi seeharhed, all homes are custom built and our subdivision has many retro homes, ours is retro ranch style also. These siding homes are built before the ordinance and now the house has to have at least 45% brick (I think). This one is a true southern home imo.

  2. Wow again, Nye!

    Such lovely photos. It is always a treat to visit your blog and see your latest photo creations!


    Let me know when you get my novel and what you think about it. (If you’re not too shy about sharing your thoughts, I would appreciate a few words on Lulu, where you comment about the book.)

    • Thanks Jeffrey, I absolutely love photography now. 🙂

      I’ve not received the book yet, but will sure blog about it once I get it read, and of course a comment at Lulu.

  3. That’s a fantastic morning sky!

    The house and photos looks like it could be from “Southern Living” magazine. 🙂 Great job.

    • Thanks Cambree, trying to sharpen my skill and I love the morning sky. My neighbor said that god has painted such a beautiful morning sky for us to see. 🙂

  4. I like the sunrise scene. I always feel weird taking picture in public especially with other people around. (I feel as if they going to call police on me) I guess I will not make it as photographer.

    Is that Bo taking the dog out for a morning jog?

    • Dallas, I used to feel weird at the beginning but not anymore, perhaps I’m just weird. 🙂

      That’s Bo walking the dog, you are very observant. 🙂
