JW Marriott Cancun Sunrise...

SUN SEARCH PHOTO SHOOT

I opened the drapes at six fifteen AM and detected a warm glow on the sea. I couldn't see what I was hoping to see from our "ocean view" balcony. So I grabbed my camera, threw on my warm-ups, hollered adiĆ³s to Honey and headed for the beach. I wanted this sunrise on film. Honey didn't bring any art supplies to amuse himself and he needed some sunshine in the great outdoors. I truly hoped this was the day he was going to get it.I hoped it would be a day I could paint by the pool.










Warm temps greeted me as I greeted the sun laughing. The winds were down. The day was going to be the kind we had in mind--and my workout pants were too hot. I was overdressed.

FAST FORWARD: MICHIGAN MUSH

I wasn't overdressed yesterday. I was bundled up just right for sixteen degrees, snow and slush. I shot this photo through the car window as Honey and I came home from work. The colorless drabness of the scene made Cancun's January rain clouds a fond memory and the resort's rising sun on the third day, pure exhilaration.

  2. Thanks Chrissy. My little camera was in my hand more than a paint brush on this trip. I love photography as much as I love painting--maybe more? It's less messy, less involved and goes everywhere.
