Sunday, 1/31/10 – 30 Seconds

Early morning.

The sky is beginning to lighten.

Sunrise is still a half-hour away.

The air is cold and still.

It will take 30 seconds for the camera, sitting atop a tripod, to capture this scene.

With my shoulders hunched up around my ears and my hands thrust down deep inside my jacket pockets I imagine sitting comfortably in the home across the river enjoying a steaming cup of coffee as I watch some fool set up a camera and tripod in the early morning chill.
