Just below the surface

Several months ago I assigned myself a 365-day photography project. My goal has been to take a photo of the sunrise every day for a year. It’s presented all sorts of challenges, from cloudy days to feelings of tedium. I take heart in the fact that even though the pictures sometimes don’t pan out, the project at least gets me out of bed during the quieter part of the day.

I have a favorite vantage point from which to watch the sun rise and take my photos. It’s a secluded stretch of shore along Lake Michigan that I reach by squeezing down a narrow path through the boulders on the other side of a breakwater. These same boulders become my sound barrier, hushing the otherwise constant churn of traffic behind me. This is my closet, enveloped in serenity, purpose, daily watchfulness, and activity.
