Friday Shoot Out- Columbas Day. My discovery

Friday Shoot Out

Friday Oct. 07, 2011
Theme
Columbus Day
Discovery
A new day dawning

Since I have been doing FSO I have posted numerous shots of my town.
Found some of my best shots in the back streets and alleys through town.
In honor of Columbus Day I thought of a new business, new homes, new scenes to use for today.
I was not happy with what I came up with.
One morning I was up before daylight and noticed the light outside my windows begin to become brighter.
I went out to discover a new day.
The sun is a constant.
Each sunrise is a new day open to discovery.
Columbus saw the sun rise on his new land for the first time in 1492 and opened up unimagined possibilities for this part of the world.



I am discovering that same sunrise everyday,hundreds of years later and the same possibilities lay ahead for us all.
Go here for more FSO.

Here's looking at ya

I have been driving my daughter to work at 6:45 each morning. I dread getting out of bed but then we drive toward the sunrise and I know my day is more blessed than if I had slept in.

Stunning sunrise! I can see sunrise from my 13th floor apartment , from the kitchen's window and sunset from my front door, I love my top floor apartment.

this makes me think for the primary school hymnal I used to sing. " For the beauty of the skies."
