Morning . . . SkyWatchFriday

I know, I know another sunset ... no, no, it's a sunrise this time.
Click Sky Watch Friday for wonderful sky photos.Taken this morning, on the way to work, by quickly pulling off into the parking lot of the Vista Grande elementary school. One thing about Palos Verdes is that majority of schools have the most amazing views of the Los Angeles basin or the Pacific (I'll have to post some when the air is less smoggy/hazy.)

I read a comment today about photographer's eye taking over ... I have a "blogger brain" that switches the posts on me after I have a solid plan on what to post. Anyone else experience this?
Inspired by Virginia (BirminghamDP), I'd like to recommend one of my favorite pieces of music to listen to at sunrise: Mozart's "AVE VERUM CORPUS" KV 618.

Great LA sunrise. I am an exValley guy myself. I also love the virtual office shot. I'll check in later to go through your site.
Cheers

Beautiful sunrise!

I am not sure if I understood you well regarding the experience you asked. I think I have this feeling too. When I am out, going to work/school or coming back home, I often look around to find something interesting to take its photo for my blog. After taking the photo and viewing it, I simulated how it looks when uploaded in the blog and asked myself what I should write about it and what the subject will be.

Sorry for the wrong expression ... Consider "I imagine how it looks" instead of what I wrote ;)

I am not still enough well in English. Thanks

Hi Tash,
I think no matter how hard we try, among other things, the format we're using, our base instincts, and sometimes our need to please others all have an effect on our choices. I think you made a great choice for SWF. Just beautiful.

Well, I take a fluid approach, at least, what I consider fluid. I have a general idea in mind but I don't compose any text until after I've uploaded the relevant photo. Sometimes, I can't think of anything to say, as you must have noticed. Occasionally, I have a specific thing to say, such as with the excursion posts.

I'm grateful for your photographer's eye and blogger's brain. This is wonderful. Those kids are blessed with a super view!

Looks like you have a nice drive to work, just look up, avoid the traffic.

I am very impressed you have taken the photo and posted this morning. I have a touch of ADD so switching my post at 10:00 at night is not unusual. I think I give it all way too much thought. We aim to please!

Beautiful photo! I tend to just take a lot of photos of everything that catches my eye, then choose one each day...without much rhyme or reason. Thanks for playing my Mystery Photo game. Check out my blog today for the answer!

I've been blogging for 7 weeks and know exactly what you mean about "blogger's brain." Happens all the time. Today, in fact.

This SWF picture is terrific. The blazing sky and the pine silhettes. Really a wonderful picture.
