I got out of bed at 11:00 am today. Fortunately it’s the weekend and all I’ve got to do is a little classwork (mostly done already!) plus some housekeeping. On weekdays it’s another story. I have my morning routine on a schedule as tight as a Marine, with nearly everything carefully planned the night before so as to avoid losing even one extra minute’s sleep. Thus, it was hard for me to find a photo to illustrate this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge theme: morning. I don’t have time to take photos in the morning!
It took a while before I could recall a time I do take photos in the morning: when I’ve booked myself on an early train. I’ve shared this photo with you before; it shows the beautiful morning train ride between Mostar and Sarajevo in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The train runs twice daily and takes a little longer than a bus, but the 7:00 am departure affords beautiful views of hills, valleys and rivers as the sun rises. Maybe if mornings here in suburbia were that beautiful I’d be more inclined to get up early!
